Flux Flow Resistance in YBa2Cu3O7 Superconductors
Herron, Michael S.
This paper begins with a general overview and purpose of the project. An historical account of superconductivity is presented, followed by a simplistic explanation of the basic characteristics of superconductors. Pertinent phenomena of these materials and how they relate to the project at hand are then discussed. This paper does not indulge in the theory of superconductivity, as this subject is still unclear to all researchers. Methods and concerns of the experiment are detailed next, along with the resolutions to certain problems. Selected data are provided, and the ensuing analysis and conclusions are given. The overall success of the project is encouraging, and the results should be beneficial to many other research groups.
