Physica C - Superconductivity and its Applications vol:404 issue:1-4 pages:44-49
We report experimental results of a superconducting Pb disk and triangle of the intermediate size, i.e. between the mesoscopic and the macroscopic regime. The magnetization is measured by Hall magnetometry. A comparison of the stability of different vortex configurations in the two different geometries is done. The experimental results for the disk are compared with theoretical predictions. There is a reasonable agreement between the theory and the experiment. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
