Automatic Apparatus for Simultaneous Measurement of Resistance and Inductance Temperature Transition Dependences of Superconductors

An automatic measurement complex for the study of transition properties of HTc superconductors using the transport method of the measurement of the resistance temperature dependence and the contactless mutual inductance method of the measurement of temperature dependence of the induced voltage based on the Meissner-Ochsenfeld effect have been developed. In addition, temperature dependences of harmonic components of the induced voltage may be measured simultaneously using the Brüel & Kjaer signal analyzer. Results of transport and induced voltage measurements are compared using YBCO superconductors with distinct grain and intergrain properties prepared by different technological procedures. The question of the mutual compatibility of such methods is discussed.
