dc.description.abstractThis paper begins with a general introduction to some of the properties of superconductors. A discussion of the theory of high temperature superconductivity will be omitted because the scientific community is still unsure about all of the mechanisms involved. The ideas of flux creep and flux flow are introduced as dissipation mechanisms. A detailed description of the experimental methods is given and the results of our research are discussed. The heavy ion bombardment and Lab VIEW interface are discussed in the appendices.en_US
