Abstract

Recent achievements in electronic device miniaturization allow one to study the mesoscopic superconducting samples with sizes of the order of the coherence length ξ(T). Such structures attract a considerable current interest as a possible basis for low temperature electronics. The superconducting state was studied experimentally for different-shaped samples: discs, loops, double loops, dots etc. [1, 2]. It was shown that the sample shape and sizes affect significantly the phase diagrams of the mesoscopic superconductors.
