Dynamic Observation of Vortices in Superconductors Using Electron Waves

  • A. Tonomura (a1)

Individual vortices in superconductors were directly and even dynamically observed by using a “coherent” field emission electron beam. Magnetic lines of force of vortices were quantitatively observed in a holographic interference micrograph and their dynamics were observed by Lorentz microscopy. The interaction of vortices with both line- and point-defects was investigated by direct observation.
