Dendritic magnetic instability in superconducting MgB2 films


– Magneto-optical imaging reveal that below 10 K the penetration of magnetic flux in MgB2 films is dominated by dendritic structures abruptly formed in response to an applied field. The dendrites show a temperature-dependent morphology ranging from quasi-1D at 4 K to large tree-like structures near 10 K. This behaviour is responsible for the anomalous noise… (More)
