Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The possibility of the formation of multiple-quanta vortices in a superconducting thin film with circular defects is discussed. It is shown that the condition for creating two-quanta vortices on a circular defect depends on the radius of defect, the separation between defects and the configuration of defects.
