A model for variable thickness superconducting thin films

Abstract:

A model for superconductivity in thin films having variable thickness is derived through an averaging process across the film. When the film is of uniform thickness the model is identical to a model for superconducting cylinders as the Ginzburg-Landau parameter tends to ∞. This means that all superconducting materials, whether type I or type II in bulk, behave as type-II superconductors when made into sufficiently thin films. When the film is of non-uniform thickness the variations in thickne...
