...Thus, Bohr’s quantization (1) and the influence of the magnetic vector potential A on the phase ∇φ of the wave function (call sometimes as Aharonov-Bohm effect [21]) seem to describe successfully numerous quantum phenomena observed in superconducting rings and also in normal metal mesoscopic rings [22, 23]....
