Abstract
The profile of the stationary magnetic field penetrating into the superconducting niobium films was measured by specular reflection of thermal polarized neutrons. At 4.9 K and at 500 Oe the field penetrates practically without attenuation into the depth of (xi) equals 28 nm near the vacuum boundary, which is connected with the nearsurface depression of the superconducting order parameter. Further, in the depth of the film, the attenuation corresponds to a London law with the decay constant (Lambda) equals 45 nm. The measurements are done on the polarized neutron spectrometer SPN at the IBR-2 pulsed reactor at Dubna.
