Abstract

We examined a single vortex line in an infinite type-II superconducting thin film with finite thickness. The thickness dependence of the magnetic force acting on a point dipole placed above a superconducting film is calculated as the negative of the gradient of the interaction energy, coupled to the London theory of superconductivity with electromagnetics. We also considered the situation of a single vortex creation in the thin film, caused by the field of the magnetic dipole tip itself. The thickness dependence of the critical position of the point dipole for creating the first vortex line in the thin film is calculated.
