Title
Stability of vortex-antivortex "molecules" in mesoscopic superconducting triangles
Author
Abstract
We have revealed thermodynamically stable vortex-antivortex configurations in mesoscopic type I superconducting equilateral triangles. The revealed effect is explained by two factors: (i) vortex confinement in mesoscopic triangles and (ii) appearance of the vortex-antivortex repulsion in mesoscopic type I superconductor triangles in the vicinity of the dual point. The stability of the obtained solutions is examined as a function of material and external parameters - the Ginzburg-Landau parameter K and temperature - as well as a function of a distortion of the sample's shape. The vortex-antivortex. "molecule" turns out to be stable in a wide range of the parameters that makes it possible its experimental visualization.
