Microwave power absorption and nonresonant signals due to viscous fluxon motion

  • S. Y. Tang

To account for low field microwave absorption in high-T c superconducting cuprates situated in the electron spin resonance configuration, an elegant model based on viscous fluxon motion has been proposed by Portiset al. [11–13]. In view of this model, however, derivations of neither the explicit expression of the power absorption nor the signal had been addressed. In this publication, the stated expressions are derived by fusing the idea of Portiset al. [11–13] and that of Kessleret al. and Dulčićet al. [20,21].
