Abstract

The response of thermally activated free vortices in superconducting thin films to a crossed electric field and temperature gradient is shown to produce a static magnetic field perpendicular to the plane of the film. The magnetization, which results from an induced imbalance between the free vortex and antivortex densities, is proportional to the logarithmic derivative of the free-vortex density and to a vortex-nonequilibrium relaxation time.
