Theory of periodically driven, current-carrying, superconducting filaments. I. Spatially homogeneous states

  • Rafael Rangel
  • Lorenz Kramer


Starting from the nonequilibrium theory of dirty superconductors in the Ginzburg-Landau regime, spatially homogeneous states with an applied currentI=I0+I1 cos (ωt) are considered. Expressions for the linear response (I1 small) valid up to high frequencies (ħω≪kBTc) are derived and evaluated analytically for the experimentally important case of smallI0 and ħω≪Δ0(T). Then the nonlinear response is treated for frequencies with ωτE≪1. Interesting new behavior is found for frequencies ωτ0 ∼1, where τ0 is essentially the GL relaxation time.
