Superheating Field of Type II Superconductors

Abstract:

The superheating magnetic field of a type II superconductor is examined, using the time-dependent Ginzburg–Landau equations and the methods of formal asymptotics. The superconducting solution in a halfspace is found to exist only for magnetic fields lower than some critical value where there is a folding over of the solution branch. A linear stability analysis is performed both in one and two dimensions, giving differing criteria for stability. Finally, superheating fields for more general ge...
