Abstract

The behavior of a superconductor in a DC magnetic field is dictated by the dissipative motion of flux quanta. Pinning of flux quanta improve the current carrying of superconductors, so that an essential part of the design of the devices and systems resides in proper modelling of such physical phenomenon. We present a method to determine the physical parameters affecting flux motion in superconducting materials in a DC magnetic field using nondestructive, high–frequency measurements of the field-induced surface impedance Δ(). We discuss the relia- bility of the measurements of the flux motion parameters when thermal activation is present. Motivated by the extensive study of high- superconductors with engineered, linearly extended pinning centers, we extend the analysis to include anisotropy and anisotropic properties. Finally, we give examples of the method using measurements of Δ() on YBa2Cu3O7−–based materials.
