Mesoscopic Superconductivity

We developed a pioneering technique named ballistic Hall magnetometry, which allowed magnetisation measurements of individual superconductors of submicron size. This work has led to a number of surprising and counter-intuitive observations, such as giant, fractional and “negative” vortices and the paramagnetic Meissner effect.
