Response of Magnetically Irreversible Type II Cylinders to Currents and Fields Applied in a Parallel Axial Geometry

When a magnetically reversible type II superconductor is placed in a uniform magnetic field there is established within the superconductor an Abrikosov1 flux line lattice of uniform density. If such a superconductor is subjected to an applied magnetic field and current in a parallel geometry, there is set up within the superconductor a flux and current structure which is Lorentz-force free.2–4 Everywhere within the superconductor the local current density J and field B are parallel.
