  Title Flux-line response in 2H-NbSe2 investigated by means of the vibrating superconductor method Type Journal Article
  Year 1993 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 218 Issue 1-2 Pages 238-244  
  Keywords Crystals; Defects; Electric currents; Electric losses; Hydrogenation; Niobium compounds; Phase diagrams; Thermal effects; Critical currents; Flux line response; Hydrogenated niobium selenide single crystals; Peak effect; Transverse AC losses; Vibrating superconductor method; Vortex pinning regime; Superconducting materials  
  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 Correlation between critical current and resistivity in YBa2Cu3O7 Type Journal Article
  Year 1991 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 185-189 Issue PART 4 Pages 2447-2448  
  Keywords Ceramic Materials; Yttrium Compounds--Electric Conductivity; Critical Currents; Oxide Superconductors; Yttrium Barium Copper Oxides; High Temperature Superconductors  
  Abstract Critical current versus temperature measurements were carried out in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7 samples. The samples were all prepared using the same sintering procedure, but starting from powders obtained by different wet and dry methods. All samples showed a linear Jc vs. T behaviour, typical of Josephson weak-link coupling, with a slope that depends on the preparation method. Using the Ambegaokar-Baratoff relation for Jc, the difference in slopes can be attributed to a change in the characteristic value of the junction resistance. This value turns out to be clearly correlated with the resistivity in the normal state.

  Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 235-240 Issue PART 2 Pages 1431-1432  
  Keywords  
  Abstract We report optical reflectivity and transmission measurements at room temperature on a set of five YBa2Cu3O6+x films for 0.38?x?, and ?{variant}(T) resistivity data down to 10K, prepared from a single YBa2Cu3O7 thin film. In contrast with x=1, as x decreases, the scattering rate deduced from the optical conductivity departs from its linear variation with ?, in correlation with the absence of linearity of ?{variant}(T) versus temperature.

  Title Characterization of the Nb-B Superlattice System Type Journal Article
  Year 2016 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 531 Issue Pages 93-97  
  Keywords Superlattice; Superconductivity; Transition Edge Sensors  
  Abstract Abstract

We study the growth, stacking and superconducting properties of Nb and B thin films and superlattices. The interest in these resides in their possible use in transition edge neutron sensors. The samples were grown by magnetron sputtering over Si (100) substrates. The X-ray diffraction patterns for all Nb containing samples show a Nb (110) preferential orientation. From the low-angle X-ray reflectivity we obtain information on the superlattice structure. The superconducting transition temperatures of the superlattices, obtained from the temperature dependence of the magnetization, are higher than those of single Nb films of similar thickness. The temperature dependence of the perpendicular and parallel upper critical fields indicate that the superlattices behave as an array of decoupled superconducting Nb layers.

  Title Effect of low-temperature thermal annealing on the vortex dynamics of metastable β-Bi2Pd single crystals Type Journal Article
  Year 2022 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal Physica C  
  Volume 598 Issue Pages 1354051  
  Keywords  
  Abstract We study the vortex dynamics on β-Bi2Pd single crystals with a superconducting critical temperature of 5.1 K. The upper critical fields and magnetic penetration depth are determined from magnetization measurements. At low temperatures, the self-field critical current density (Jc) is ≈ 20 kA/cm2. The vortex pinning energy, extracted from an Anderson-Kim approximation, is between 340 K and 140 K for fields between 100 G and 600 G. Differential scanning calorimetric measurements show that the crystals start to transform into the alpha-phase at temperatures as low as 60 °C. Short annealing at 100 °C modifies the pinning landscape increasing Jc mainly at temperatures below 3 K. The angular dependence of Jc from electrical transport experiments shows a broad peak when the magnetic field is parallel to the crystallographic c-axis, indicating the presence of correlated disorder.

  Title Effect of mixed pinning landscapes produced by 6 MeV oxygen irradiation on the resulting critical current densities Jc in 1.3 µm thick GdBa2Cu3O7-d coated conductors grown by co-evaporation Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal Physica C  
  Volume 542 Issue Pages 6-11  
  Keywords Coated conductors; Vortex dynamics; Glassy exponents; Irradiation  
  Abstract We report the influence of crystalline defects introduced by 6 MeV 16O3+ irradiation on the critical current densities Jc and flux creep rates in 1.3 µm thick GdBa2Cu3O7-δ coated conductor produced by co-evaporation. Pristine films with pinning produced mainly by random nanoparticles with diameter close to 50 nm were irradiated with doses between 2 × 1013 cm−2 and 4 × 1014 cm−2. The irradiations were performed with the ion beam perpendicular to the surface of the samples. The Jc and the flux creep rates were analyzed for two magnetic field configurations: magnetic field applied parallel (Hâ•‘c) and at 45° (Hâ•‘45°) to the c-axis. The results show that at temperatures below 40 K the in-field Jc dependences can be significantly improved by irradiation. For doses of 1 × 1014 cm−2 the Jc values at μ0H = 5 T are doubled without affecting significantly the Jc at small fields. Analyzing the flux creep rates as function of the temperature in both magnetic field configurations, it can be observed that the irradiation suppresses the peak associated with double-kink relaxation and increases the flux creep rates at intermediate and high temperatures. Under 0.5 T, the flux relaxation for H‖c and H||45° in pristine films presents characteristic glassy exponents μ = 1.63 and μ = 1.45, respectively. For samples irradiated with 1 × 1014 cm−2, these values drop to μ = 1.45 and μ = 1.24, respectively

  Title Dynamic softening of vortex lines in YBa2Cu3O7-? single crystals Type Journal Article
  Year 1996 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 260 Issue 3-4 Pages 211-216  
  Keywords Crystal defects; Magnetic anisotropy; Magnetic couplings; Mathematical models; Single crystals; Transport properties; Vortex flow; Yttrium compounds; Dynamic softening; Flux transformer configuration; Pinning potential; Transport measurements; Vortex correlation; Vortex line; Yttrium barium cuprates; High temperature superconductors  
  Abstract Transport measurements in the mixed state of oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3O7-? single crystals using the flux transformer configuration show that the flux liquid changes with increasing anisotropy from strongly correlated to uncorrelated in the field direction. For intermediate coupling, the current inducing loss of vortex correlation has a maximum near the irreversibility temperature. Thus, an effective softening of vortex lines with decreasing temperature is detected. We propose a simple model that accounts for this behavior by including the effects of the pinning potential on the dynamics of vortices.

  Title Influence of field inhomogeneity on the magnetization of YBCO films Type Journal Article
  Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 225 Issue 3-4 Pages 337-345  
  Keywords Magnetization; Superconducting films; SQUID magnetometers; Superconducting ceramics; YBCO superconductors; High temperature superconductors  
  Abstract DC magnetization data of superconducting thin YBCO films, measured by means of a magnetometer in which the sample is pulled through a set of pick-up coils, are often calculated from pick-up signals which clearly deviate from the ideal response. We show how these signal distortions influence the values obtained for the magnetization, and present a simple model that enables one to simulate the temperature dependence of these distorted pick-up signals, in the case of low-field magnetization measurements. The model is based on the magnetic field inhomogeneity of the magnetometer, in combination with the hysteretic magnetization of the superconducting sample. Optimum values for the model parameters are derived and discussed.

  Title Effect of room temperature annealing on the properties of oxygen- deficient YBa2Cu3Ox films Type Journal Article
  Year 1993 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 206 Issue 1-2 Pages 51-58  
  Keywords Annealing; Ceramic materials; Hall effect; Superconducting films; Yttrium compounds; Critical current density; Oxide superconductors; Yttrium barium copper oxides; High temperature superconductors  
  Abstract Annealing at room temperature of quenched oxygen-depleted YBa2Cu3Oxn (6.5?xn<6.8) films, produces a clear increase in the critical temperature Tc and current density Jc, while the normal state resistivity ?{variant}xx and Hall coefficient RH decrease as a function of annealing time, indicating an increase in carrier density. The enhancement of the critical current density Jc is more pronounced at high fields and temperatures due to a shift of the irreversibility line, which scales with the increasing Tc. The observed changes are accompanied by corresponding changes in the crystalline structure, which can be related to oxygen ordering effects.

  Title Magnetic properties of oxygen deficient Yba2Cu3Ox thin films Type Journal Article
  Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl  
  Volume 235-240 Issue PART 5 Pages 2889-2890  
  Keywords  
  Abstract We have invesitgated several superconducting properties of oxygen defiecient YBa2Cu3Ox thin films, with oxygen contents ranging from x = 6.55 to x = 7. By means of torque magnetometry, the temperature dependence of the superconducting current dendity js and relaxation rate of the magnetization Q is measured in an (almost perpendicular) applied magnetic induction of 0.6 T. As the oxygen content is reduced, js decreases, whereas Q increases. Both properties are influenced by the decreased dpoing level as well as the enhanced anisotropy of oxygen depleted YBa2Cu3Ox. Using the Generalixed Inversion Scheme derived by Schnak et al. we obtain the current dependence of the activation energy U(f). We show that U(j) is lowered when the oxygen content is reduced.
