Abstract

Using the newly emerged theory model of an electromagnetic proximity effect, we demonstrate that it provides a good description of our previously reported anomalous Meissner screening observed in thin film superconductor-ferromagnet proximity structures. Using the low energy muon spin rotation measurement technique, we further investigate this new theory by probing directly the flux screening in various superconductor-ferromagnet proximity structures. We examine its main characteristics and find in general good agreement between theory and experiment. Understanding and control of this new proximity effect is an important step forward toward a new generation of superconducting spintronic devices.
