Effect of annealing high-dose heavy-ion irradiated high-temperature superconductor wires

Strickland, N. M.; Wimbush, S. C.; Kluth, Patrick; Mota-Santiago, Pablo; Ridgway, Mark C; Kennedy, J; Long, N. J


Heavy-ion irradiation of high-temperature superconducting thin films has long been known to generate damage tracks of amorphized material that are of close-to-ideal dimension to effectively contribute to pinning of magnetic flux lines and thereby enhance the in-field critical current. At the same time, though, the presence of these tracks reduces the superconducting volume fraction available to transport current while the irradiation process itself generates oxygen depletion and disorder in the...[Show more]
