Unformatted text preview: arrangement of singly quantized vortices and (ii) giant vortex states with a single multiply quantized vortex in the center. Here, we report on the experimental distinction between the giant vortex states and multivortex states in a disk, by using the multiple-small-tunnel-junction method, in which transport properties of several small tunnel junctions attached to the disk are measured simultaneously. More-over, we experimentally nd magnetic eld induced rearrangement and combination of vortices. The experimental results are well reproduced in numerical results based on the nonlinear Ginzburg-Landau theory.
