Abstract

We study the behavior of a superconducting material subjected to a constant applied magnetic field, $H_a = he with \mid e\mid = 1$, using the Ginzburg-Landau theory. We analytically show the existence of a critical field h̄, for which, when $h > \bar h$, the normal states are the only solutions to the Ginzburg-Landau equations. We estimate h̄. As $\kappa \downarrow 0$ we derive $\bar h = O (1)$, while as κ → ∞ we obtain $\bar h = O(\kappa)$.
