Dependence of Magnetic Induction on the Magnetic Field in Supraconducting Lead

Nature volume 134, pages 286287 (25 August 1934) | Download Citation



SUPRACONDUCTIVITY is destroyed by a magnetic field, the critical field Hk depending on temperature. Until recently it was held that the magnetic state of a supraconductor could be computed from electro dynamics with the aid of a single assumption that the conductivity is infinitely great right up to Hk. The dependence of the magnetic induction B on the field strength H for this case is shown on Fig. 1 by the thick line.
