We numerically perform microscopic calculations for charge distributions around a superconducting vortex core on the basis of the BdG formalism including the Poisson equation for the scalar potential. The numerical results reveal that the charge distribution shows the Friedel oscillation around a vortex core and the oscillation survives over the coherence length in small kFξ cases, i.e. the quantum limit. To clarify the origin of the oscillation we study the charge screening properties by calculating the charge density correlation function around a vortex core. The correlation function strongly depends on the position from the vortex center and remarkably oscillates around the vortex core. This result indicates that the Thomas-Fermi type screening is broken in the vortex core.
