Abstract

Type-II superconductivity is known to persist close to the sample surface in presence of a strong magnetic field. As a consequence, the ground state energy in the Ginzburg–Landau theory is approximated by an effective one-dimensional model. As shown by Correggi and Giacomelli (2021 Calc. Var. Partial Differential Equations in press), the presence of corners on the surface affects the energy of the sample with a non-trivial contribution. In (Correggi and Giacomelli 2021 Calc. Var. Partial Differential Equations in press), the two-dimensional model problem providing the corner energy is implicitly identified and, although no explicit dependence of the energy on the corner opening angle is derived, a conjecture about its form is proposed. We study here such a conjecture and confirm it, at least to leading order, for corners with almost flat opening angle.
