Abstract

We present wideband microwave measurements (1–22 GHz) taken on. superconductor/ferromagnet heterostructures with the Corbino disc technique. We apply the. technique to Nb\/PdNi/Nb trilayers in the vortex state and we compare the results to data taken. with the same technique on a Nb thin film. We show that it is possible to directly extract the. genuine flux-flow resistivity from our frequency-dependent measurements without overcoming. the (depinning) critical current. The characteristic frequency for vortex relaxation can also be. estimated, without resorting to a specific model. We find that the F layer determines a. weakening of pinning and an enhancement of the flux-flow resistivity with respect to the Nb. film.
