Vortex motion in reconfigurable three-dimensional superconducting nanoarchitectures

arXiv has published an article by Zhakina et Al on their research involving the harnessing of 3D nanopatterning in order to control the properties of a 3D superconducting nanostructure. Their abstract reads: “not only
are we able to demonstrate the existence and motion of superconducting vortices in 3D but, with simulations, we show that the confinement leads to a well-defined bending of the vortices within the volume of the structure … This insight into the influence of 3D geometries on superconducting properties offers a route to local reconfigurable control for future computing devices, sensors, and quantum technologies”

Silson’s silicon nitride membranes of thickness 150 nm were sputtered with gold and used as primary substrates for the TEM analysis
