Abstract

The energy barrier which has to be overcome for a single vortex to enter or exit the sample is studied for thin superconducting disks, rings, and squares using the nonlinear Ginzburg-Landau theory. The shape and the height of the nucleation barrier is investigated for different sample radii and thicknesses and for different values of the Ginzburg-Landau parameter κ. It is shown that the London theory considerably overestimates (underestimates) the energy barrier for vortex expulsion (penetration).
