Calculation of the total pinning force without a threshold criterion

  • I. Kirschner
  • K. Martinás


The total pinning force in type II superconductors with randomly distributed pinning centers is determined, assuming a static, friction-type force characterizing the vortex-pinning interaction. The resulting total pinning force does not show a threshold criterion and describes the experimental data quite well.
