Luzuriaga, J., M. - O. Andre, and W. Benoit. "Frequency and amplitude response of the flux-line lattice to mechanical perturbation in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7." Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications 201, no. 3-4 (1992): 257–262.
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.
