  author={M. U. Fareed and Harold Steven Ruiz},
Improving our understanding of the physical coupling between type-II superconductors (SC) and soft ferromagnetic materials (SFM) is the root for progressing to the application of SC-SFM metastructures in scenarios such as magnetic cloaking, magnetic shielding, and power transmission systems. However, in the latter, some intriguing and yet unexplained phenomena occurred, such as a noticeable rise in the SC energy losses, and a local but not isotropic deformation of its magnetic flux density… Expand

A possible nanoscale method of improving the critical current density of superconducting conductors is the introduction of sub-micron magnetic pinning centres, but the volumetric density and chemical compatibility of magnetic inclusions has to be controlled to avoid suppression of the superconductor properties.
