Duarte and Alice Presotto and Danilo Okimoto and Vin'icius S. Souto and Edson Sardella and Rafael Zadorosny}, journal={arXiv: Superconductivity}, year={2019} }

Usually, the measurements of electronic and magnetic properties of superconducting samples are carried out under a constant temperature bath. On the other hand, thermal gradients induce local variation of the superconducting order parameter, and the vortex dynamics can present interesting behaviors. In this work, we solved the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations simulating samples under two different thermal gradients, and considering two values of the Ginzburg-Landau parameter, \k{appaβ¦Β
