Title Low temperature internal friction peak in high Tc superconductors Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1991 Publication Solid State Communications Abbreviated Journal Solid State Commun.
Volume 77 Issue 10 Pages 777-780
Keywords Ceramic Materials; Oxides – Acoustic Properties; Yttrium Compounds – Acoustic Properties; Acoustic Variables Measurement; Attenuation Peak; Calcium Compounds; Low Temperature Internal Friction Peak; Strontium Compounds; Thermally Activated Relaxation Behavior; High Temperature Superconductors
Abstract We measure the internal friction Q-1 in YBa2Cu3O7-x and Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x samples. At temperatures near 35 K for KHz frequencies we observe an attenuation peak. In the case of YBa2Cu3O7-x, assuming a thermally activated relaxation behaviour, we are able to show that it corresponds to the same process as other peaks observed at higher frequencies. For Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x this is not the case, and the origin of the peak, found in all the measured samples, remains unknown.

Title Frequency and amplitude response of the flux-line lattice to mechanical perturbation in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7 Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1992 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 201 Issue 3-4 Pages 257-262
Keywords Copper oxides; Crystal lattices; Frequency response; Internal friction; Lattice vibrations; Magnetic fields; Mathematical models; Mechanical properties; Pendulums; Rheology; Thermal effects; Torque; Yttrium compounds; Amplitude response; Ceramic yttrium barium copper oxides; Extended dry friction model; Flux line lattices; Forced pendulum; Frequency independent dissipation peak; Mechanical response; Thermal activation; High temperature superconductors
Abstract The mechanical response of the flux-line lattice has been measured with a low-frequency forced pendulum in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7. A dissipation peak observed in temperature sweeps is frequency-independent between 1 mHz and 5 Hz. Dissipation depends strongly on applied torque, and for fixed temperatures this dependence is well fitted by a rheological model of extended dry friction. If the model is extended to take account of thermal activation, however, it does not agree with the measured frequency independence, which is hard to explain within simple models of thermal activation.

Title Mechanical response of the flux lines in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7- Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1992 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 45 Issue 21 Pages 12492-12497
Keywords
Abstract We have studied the mechanical response of the flux-line lattice (FLL) in ceramic samples of YBa2Cu3O7 by means of a low-frequency forced pendulum. The internal friction and elastic modulus variation of the FLL have been measured as a function of temperature for different values of the applied stress. A somewhat different behavior was observed whether a zero-field-cooling or field-cooling procedure was followed. Measurements of the internal friction and elastic modulus as a function of the applied stress at constant temperature show amplitude-dependent dissipation, with a maximum dissipation at intermediate values of the stress. This dependence is well fitted by a rheological model of extended dry friction, if we restrict ourselves to the dissipation and modulus at fixed temperature. The agreement is not so good when attempting to extend the model to fit the temperature dependence.

Title Flux-line response in 2H-NbSe2 investigated by means of the vibrating superconductor method Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1993 Publication Physica C Abbreviated Journal Physica C
Volume 218 Issue 1-2 Pages 238-244
Keywords
Abstract We measure transverse AC losses in the low- and high-amplitude regime of 2H-NbSe2 single crystals using vibrating superconductor methods. The measurements are sensitive to small deviations of the critical state. The data constitute evidence for a peak effect of the critical current as a function of the temperature in this compound. We construct in the H-T phase diagram the ''peak-effect'' line which is supposed to mark an abrupt cross-over in the vortex-pinning regime.

Title Role of anisotropy in the vortex lattice of superconductors high-Q oscillator measurements in 2H-NbSe2 and La1.825Sr.075CuO4 Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1994 Publication Physica C Abbreviated Journal
Volume 229 Issue 1-2 Pages 59-64
Keywords
Abstract Measurements of the response of the flux-line lattice in NbSe2 and La1.825Sr0.075CuO4 show important differences between these two materials. In particular, we have studied the magnetic-field and angular dependence of the response of a high-Q mechanical oscillator in fields of up to 1 T. The features seen in NbSe2 seem to be well explained in terms of a change in the pinning regime, usually termed the ''peak effect'' in the critical current, using the collective-pinning model of Larkin and Ovchivnikov within Ginzburg-Landau anisotropic theory. On the other hand the behavior found in the high-T(c) material LSCO seems to fall naturally into a description which takes into account the possibility of phase transitions in the vortex lattice and the quasi-two-dimensional character of the superconductivity.

Title Vortex glass melting in single crystal La1.825 Sr0.075CuO4 Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1996 Publication Physica C Abbreviated Journal Physica C
Volume 258 Issue 1-2 Pages 169-174
Keywords Copper compounds; Crystal lattices; Frequency response; Glass; Magnetic field measurement; Magnetic permeability measurement; Melting; Phase diagrams; Single crystals; Temperature; Vortex flow; AC susceptibility; Cuprates; Pinned flux lattice; Oxide superconductors
Abstract The vortex phase diagram in single crystalline La1.85Sr0.075CuO4 has been studied using an AC-susceptibility technique. A peak in the out-of-phase (x?) component of the susceptibility indicates a transition from a pinned flux lattice (FLL) to an unpinned one. This peak is frequency dependent for all the values of the magnetic field measured (0.01 to 4 T), and this, as well as the general behavior found in the cuprates, has prompted us to interpret our data as evidence for a vortex-glass to liquid transition in the FLL. The activation energies obtained can be fitted to a theory developed by Vinokur et al. Measurements with the magnetic field at an angle with the Cu-O planes may also be understood qualitatively within this framework.

Title Measurements in the laminar and turbulent regime of superfluid4He by means of an oscillating sphere Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1997 Publication Journal of Low Temperature Physics Abbreviated Journal J. Low Temp. Phys.
Volume 108 Issue 3-4 Pages 267-277
Keywords Calculations; Laminar flow; Oscillations; Spheres; Turbulence; Turbulent flow; Vibrations (mechanical); Oscillating sphere; Translational oscillation; Superfluid helium
Abstract The translational oscillations of a sphere in liquid helium have been measured as a way of studying superfluid turbulence. Experiments were carried out in the laminar flow regime for reference purposes, and good agreement found between measured and calculated quantities. In the turbulent region, the dissipation is found to be proportional to the square of the velocity of the sphere, as found previously by other workers. For high vibration amplitudes there is an increase in the hydrodynamic mass. This seems to scale with the superfluid fraction in a way that strongly suggests that the superfluid component plays an important role in the turbulent regime.

Abstract We have studied the approach of the Abelian sand pile model towards the stationary, self-organized criticality state. The uncorrelated limit is shown both numerically and by a simple analysis to follow the log-normal distribution. We introduce and evaluate several correlation functions to study the correlated region.

Title How Does a Bubble Chamber Work? Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1998 Publication Journal of Low Temperature Physics Abbreviated Journal J. Low Temp. Phys.
Volume 113 Issue 3-4 Pages 485-490
Keywords Bubbles (in fluids); Charged particles; Helium; Hydrogen; Mathematical models; Vapor pressure; Bubble chamber; Saturated vapor pressure; Superfluid helium
Abstract A charged particle passing through a bubble chamber produces a track of bubbles. The way in which these bubbles are produced has been a matter of some controversy. We consider the possibility that in helium and hydrogen bubble chambers the production of bubbles is primarily a mechanical process, rather than a thermal process as has often been assumed. The model we propose gives results which are in excellent agreement with experiment.

Title Angular variation of pinning near the irreversibility temperature in single crystal Y Ba2Cu3O7-? with splayed columnar defects Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1998 Publication Physica C Abbreviated Journal Physica C
Volume 304 Issue 1-2 Pages 112-118
Keywords Columnar defects; Critical current density; Flux pinning; Pinning force; Anisotropy; Critical current density (superconductivity); Crystal defects; Single crystals; Columnar defects; Flux pinning; Yttrium barium copper oxides
Abstract We have studied vortex pinning through ac susceptibility measurements in single crystals of YBCO with columnar defects (CDs). The CDs have 0, 10 and 20 splay angle and average direction 108 off the c-axis. By studying the angular variation we can compensate for the anisotropy and effects of twins, etc. Using a simple expression we can obtain the angular spread when the field direction is outside the splay angle. An increase of pinning when the field direction is inside

the angle defined by the CDs can be attributed to vortex entanglement due to the splay and the suppression of the sliding of double kinks.
