    Critical Current Density Improvement in Type II Superconductors by Modifying the Type, Size and the Patterns of Pinning Centers

    Motion of magnetic flux, as a result of exerting electrical current, causes dissipation and voltage difference in the type II superconducting slab. So fixing these vortices by pinning centers will increase the critical current . Enhancing the critical current by different kinds of pinning centers is interesting for a lot of theoretical and experimental research groups. At first in this project dynamics of vortices in a triangular lattice is investigated by changing the pinning force. For the case of fp=2f0 we have seen two phase transition in velocity-force plot. And also a practical pinning array of parallel lines is presented. The effect of pinning force, pinning potential width and the...

    In the 1950s, Abrikosov predicted the mixed state in superconductors (type II superconductors) which lead to a Noble Prize in 2003 with the experimental verification by shubnikov. Mixed-state is a network of magnetic flux lines with quantized flux (vortices) in superconductors. High-temperature superconductors are of Type II which the existense of vortices in a significant part of the temperature-field phase diagram of them, is an obvious phenomenon. These superconductors provided a proper context for understanding physical phenomena related to vortices and access to experimental data to compare with those provided by statistical mechanics. Vortices can move inside the superconductor by the...
