A detailed analysis is presented between flux penetration in two dimensional type II semiconducting films and experimental observations on the flux penetration in the current sheath of the plasma focus: bound vortex-antivortex pairs, pinning, collapse and magnetic flux rope structure in the vortices.

 

Keywords: flux penetration, bound vortex pairs, plasma focus, magnetic flux rope structure
