Meissner effect

Walther Meissner and Robert Ochsenfeld in 1933

Example 1: a conductor

magnetic field

relaxation τ=L/R

Magnetic field induces a screening current (Lentz’ rule) which generates the opposite field in an ideal conductor: E = j _ = 0 /B according to Maxwell’s eq. 4 ¿ E = ? 1 c /t Þ always B = const inside the conductor

London equations

Derived by F. and H. London in 1935 Two-fluid model: electron density n = n s + n n n s density of superconducting electrons n n density of normal electrons

London equations: / E = / ÅC J s Æ (1) t H = ?c 4 ¿ ÅC J s Æ (2) 4^ V 2 m C = n e 2 = c 2 L is a phenomenological parameter s m is the electron mass, e is the electron charge mc 2 V L = Å 4^ n e 2 Æ 1/2 is the London penetration depth

**”Naive” way of deriving the 1st London equation:

(not fully correct: see Schmidt’s book for correct way)

For the 2nd London equation a ”naive” way of derivation does not work: it relates to time-dependent fields important for the Meissner effect ^ Let’s start from the Maxwell’s equation 4 ¿ H = 4c J

take curl

**from both sides:

Thus, both E and H penetrate inside a superconductor to the distance V L which is called magnetic field (London) penetration depth

Using boundary conditions HÅ0Æ = H 0 and HÅKÆ = 0 we get a solution HÅxÆ = H 0 expÅ? VxL Æ for the magnetic field.

**Magnetic flux quantization
**

elementary superconducting charge is 2e , i.e. superconducting electrons are pairs all electron pairs are in the condensate, which is a quantum state at a single energy level Wave function: HÅ r Æ = Å n2s Æ 1/2 expÇi SÅ r ÆÈ , where S is the phase of the wave function. Density of particle flow ns ii D D H 4 H v = ? H 4H Æ Å 2m 2 Canonical (generalized) momentum of a particle with charge 2e and mass 2m in the magnetic field H = 4 ¿ A is p i 4 S = 2mv s +

We obtain a quantum-mechanical generalization of the 2nd London equation: 0 J s = n s ev s = c1 Å C 2^ 4 S ? A Æ . where ic 0 = ^e = 2.06783461 ¿ 10 ?15 Wb is the magnetic flux quantum.

**Let us consider a superconductor with a hole
**

at T > T c apply H = H 0 decrease T below T c select a contour C at d ¡ V L anywhere along C we have J s = 0

Integrating along C :

where is the total flux inside C . Since the wave function must have a single value at any point Þ expÅi S Æ = expÅi ÅS + 2^kÆ Æ, k = 0, 1, 2, ... Þ

[ 4 S dl = 2^k

C

or = k 0 i.e. the magnetic flux in a hole is quantized.

Similarity to the electron orbit quantization in atom t Interesting: F.London thought that 0 = 2 0 : he did not know about 2e t Experimental confirmation: Doll and Näbauer (1960)

Boundary conditions : d HÅ? d Æ = ? H and H Å Æ = HI I 2 2 General solution : HÅxÆ = H 1 coshÅ VxL Æ + H 2 sinhÅ VxL Æ Substituting this solution into the boundary conditions we get 2 equations for H 1 and H 2 . Finally : d x HÅxÆ = H I sinh ?1 Å 2V Æ sinh Å V L Æ, L where H I = 2c^ I and I is the current per unit length in z direction. Current distribution: J s Åx Æ =

4^ V L c d x H I cosh ?1 Å 2V Æ cosh Å VL Æ . L

Both H and J s are confined in the small V L -thick layer near the surface of the superconductor.

**Hint: linear superposition of the above problems (a) and (b).

Superconducting short-circuit principle:

In a complex system of superconducting films, if two neighboring film surfaces are short-circuited, it will not affect the current distribution in any other part of the system other than the two short-circuited surfaces.
