Irreversibility field as a function of grain size Université de Genève Definitions: R. Flukiger et al., « Superconducting properties of MgB 2 tapes and wires », Physica C 385 (2003) 286-305 1) A frequently used definition is based on the resistively measured superconducting transition, the criterion being the 10% of R N or the intersection of the extrapolated linear part of R(T) with R=0 2) The field at which the the inductively measured critical current vanishes 10% R N R(T) T T JcJc B M H
Irreversibility field as a function of grain size Université de Genève Third Definition: 3) The onset of the third harmonic susceptibility, in presence of a magnetic field H dc >> H ac results from a crossover between a regime in which the system response is flux low dominated (no harmonic signal) and one which is pinnig dominated. The onset of the third harmonic thus corresponds to a non-zero critical current density J c

Université de Genève Conclusion The actual state of the critical current densities has been presented, and compared with our latest data. The critical current densities J c and the n-values of the Fe/MgB 2 tapes, 3 h and 100 h ball milled have been compared. An enhancement is obtained for the smaller particle size. The critical current densities J c in the two configurations with the tape surface parallel and perpendicular to the magnetic field direction have been measured. A strong difference has been obtained, reflecting a partial texture of the grains. The various criteria of the irreversibility field B irr have been discussed. Strain effects on 100 h ball milled tape have been measured on 80 cm length with a modified Walters Spiral. The degradation of the critical current and the n-values confirming the pre-stress model.
