The effect of an externally applied high-frequency oscillating electric field on the critical nucleation field of superconductivity in the bulk as well as at the surface of a superconductor is investigated in detail in this work. Starting from the linearized time-dependent Ginzburg–Landau (TDLG) theory, and using the variational principle, I have shown the analogy between a quantum harmonic oscillator with that of the nucleation of superconductivity in the bulk and a quantum double oscillator… 


Effect of sample topology on the critical fields of mesoscopic superconductors
THE superconducting state of a material can be suppressed by either increasing the temperature (T) or applying a magnetic field (H). For bulk samples, the form of the H–T phase boundary is mainly
The onset of superconductivity in the time dependent Ginzburg-Landau theory
The fluctuations of the local order parameter above the superconducting transition temperature give rise to singularities in the electrical conductivity and the diamagnetic susceptibility. Using the

A self-consistent theory of dynamic vortex response in the linear regime is extended to describe (a) the rf complex magnetic permeability {tilde {mu}} suitable for slab geometry and (b) the
Ginzburg-Landau theory for superconductors
In this review the author describes how the simple Ginzburg-Landau approach lies in the heart of the general theory of superconductors. The reader is introduced to the handling of the theory and to

It is suggested that a heavily entangled flux liquid could exhibit a shear modulus on experimental time scales, in analogy with viscoelastic behavior in dense polymer melts.
The Pinning Potential and High‐Frequency Studies of Type‐II Superconductors
The electrical impedance of type‐II superconductors as a function of frequency is discussed in terms of a ``pinning potential.'' Many flux‐pinning properties of the mixed state at any frequency can
Effects of flux flow, flux pinning, and flux creep upon the rf surface impedance of type-II superconductors
The presence of vortices is known to have an important effect upon the rf surface impedanceZs of type-II superconductors. In this paper we summarize a new theoretical approach that permits the
Time variation of the Ginzburg--Landau order parameter
We use a nonequilibrium form of the Green's-function formulation of the BCS theory of superconductivity to investigate the circumstances under which differential equations in space and time, i.e.,
Giant vortex state in perforated aluminum microsquares
We investigate the nucleation of superconductivity in a uniform perpendicular magnetic field H in aluminum microsquares containing a few (2 and 4) submicron holes (antidots). The
