Method for Detection of Weak Links in the Current Path of Electrically Continuous Superconductors
Weak links in superconductors are detected by observing the effect of magnetic field modulation on the microwave resistance of superconductors. The phase-detected response to the magnetic modulation can show a peak at Tc. The presence of peak(s) at temperatures below Tc indicates the presence of weak links in the superconductor.
