Figure 2 (IMAGE) Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology Caption The processes occurring in the niobium (grey block) / nickel nanowire (blue cylinder) system under various ambient conditions. (a) The temperature is above critical. The system is in its normal state, the magnetic field (black arrow) is passing through the entire sample. (b) The temperature is below critical. When Hc< H < Hc1 , the magnetic field (black arrow) concentrates at the ferromagnetic nanowire (red arrows) and is shielded by the niobium (black arrows.) (c) T < T?, as the critical magnetic field strength H > Hc1 is exceeded, an Abrikosov vortex penetrates the niobium (marked with the red circle.) Credit O. V.
