An increasing current through a superconductor can result in a discontinuous increase in the differential resistance at the critical current. This critical current is typically associated either with breaking of Cooper-pairs or with the onset of collective motion of vortices. Here we measure the current–voltage characteristics of superconducting films at low temperatures and high magnetic fields. Using heat-balance considerations we demonstrate that the current–voltage characteristics are well…

Hysteresis and jumps in the I-V curves of disordered two-dimensional materials

The superconductor-insulator transition (SIT) in thin-film disordered superconductors is a hallmark example of a quantum phase transition. Despite being observed more than 30 years ago, its nature is

Resistive transition of hydrogen-rich superconductors

Critical temperature, T c, and transition width, ΔT c, are two primary parameters of the superconducting transition. The latter parameter reflects the superconducting state disturbance originating



Introduction to Superconductivity

Appropriate for intermediate or advanced courses in superconductivity, this edition has been revised to incorporate the many new developments in superconductivity. Expanded topic coverage includes

Matter and Methods at Low Temperatures

This textbook contains a wealth of information essential for successful experiments at low temperatures. The first chapters describe the low-temperature properties of liquid and solid matter,

High-Tc superconducting materials for electric power applications

The feasibility of superconducting power cables, magnetic energy-storage devices, transformers, fault current limiters and motors, largely using (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox conductor, is proven but widespread applications now depend significantly on cost-effective resolution of fundamental materials and fabrication issues, which control the production of low-cost, high-performance conductors of these remarkable compounds.

Low-temperature anomaly in disordered superconductors near Bc2 as a vortex-glass property

Systematic measurements of the critical magnetic field and current on amorphous indium oxide films with various levels of disorder show that the Bc2 anomaly is accompanied by mean-field-like scaling of thecritical current, and theory predicts that the linear-temperature anomaly occurs more generally in both films and disordered bulk superconductors.

Vortices in high-temperature superconductors

With the high-temperature superconductors a qualitatively new regime in the phenomenology of type-II superconductivity can be accessed. The key elements governing the statistical mechanics and the

Electron subsystem superheating as a cause of nonlinear current-voltage characteristics of amorphous InOx films

Current-voltage characteristics of amorphous InOx films in the region of the magnetic-field-induced superconductor-insulator transition were examined. The characteristics are shown to be nonlinear
