The Nascent Vortex State of Type II Superconductors

  • Barry L. Walton

In studying (magnetic) superheating of bulk type II superconductors of moderate κ we could not achieve the theoretically predicted superheating field.1,2 We also found more microwave absorption in the superheated state than expected. Such results enable no conclusions to be drawn. They are readily interpretable in terms of imperfect samples. The results did, however, lead us to explore the vortex nucleation problem.
