Pulsed field magnetization leads to trapped magnetic field persistent for long times. We present a one-dimensional model of the interaction between an electromagnetic wave and a superconducting slab based on the Maxwell-Ginzburg-Landau (Abelian Higgs) theory. We first derive the model starting from a Lagrangian coupling the electromagnetic field with the Ginzburg-Landau potential for the superconductor. Then we explore numerically its capabilities by applying a Gaussian vector potential pulse… Expand

Vortex Line Models for Dual Strings
We call attention to the possibility of constructing field theories for the dual string. As an example, we show that a Higgs type of Lagrangian allows for vortex-line solutions, in analogy with theExpand

Magnetic properties and AC-losses of superconductors with power law current-voltage characteristics
Abstract In many high-Tc superconductors the critical current density jc is an ill-defined quantity due to the smooth current—voltage characteristic. Since jc is the basic parameter entering theExpand
