AbstractWe report controlled local manipulation of single vortices by low temperature magnetic force microscopy in a thin film of superconducting Nb. We are able to position the vortices in arbitrary configurations and to measure the distribution of local depinning forces. This technique opens up possibilities for the characterization and use of vortices in superconductors.
