Using a magneto-optic technique, we have studied field penetration in a sample consisting of several YBCO single crystals merged together on their basal plane. The bending of field stream lines around crystal edges in such a geometry creates an orientation of the local applied field that is nearly perpendicular to the sample surface and thus results in an almost surface-barrier-free field penetration. The penetration field was measured under conditions of a fully developed and a reduced surfacedoi:10.1088/0953-2048/14/10/306 fatcat:kxrmb45hefbxdewpqeh25twqty
