Title: Effective Demagnetizing Factors of Diamagnetic Samples of Various Shapes

Abstract

Effective demagnetizing factors that connect the sample magnetic moment with the applied magnetic field are calculated numerically for perfectly diamagnetic samples of various nonellipsoidal shapes. The procedure is based on calculating the total magnetic moment by integrating the magnetic induction obtained from a full three-dimensional (3D) solution of the Maxwell equations using an adaptive mesh. The results are relevant for superconductors (and conductors in ac fields) when the London penetration depth (or the skin depth) is much smaller than the sample size. In conclusion, simple but reasonably accurate approximate formulas are given for practical shapes including rectangular cuboids, finite cylinders in axial and transverse fields, as well as infinite rectangular and elliptical cross-section strips.
