Example text

When the temperature rises to the critical temperature, T = Tc, and the superconducting electron density is equal to zero, then the superconductor transits to the normal state from the superconducting state, namely, the superconductor quenches. 2 Microscopic Theory – BCS Theory Although the two-fluid model simply and qualitatively explains the macroscopic superconducting phenomena, as a phenomenological model it cannot fundamentally explain the mechanism of superconductivity. In order to deeply understand superconductivity with the zero-resistance effect, BCS theory that describes superconductivity from a microscopic point of view is introduced according to the Bose–Einstein condensation and interaction theory between electrons and lattice in quantum mechanics.

It also characterizes the acute degree of transition of a superconductor from superconducting state to normal state. 60) where Ueff(B, T) is the effective pinning potential of superconductors and is a function of magnetic field and temperature. It also relates to the processing technology of a superconductor and with its intrinsic properties, and kB is the Bolzmann constant. 61) where units of E and Ec are μV/cm. 61). Criteria are needed to determine the critical current and n value of a superconductor.

1 Critical Temperature Tc The superconductor shows superconductivity when its temperature is below a certain value, that is, the temperature at which the superconductor transfers to a superconducting state from a normal state. This temperature is called the critical temperature and is denoted by Tc. In general, the superconducting transition usually occurs in a temperature range near Tc, which is called the temperature transition width represented by ΔTc. 5 to 1 K, owing to their intrinsic characteristics, such as internal inhomogeneity, weak link, granularity and defects.
