Abstract

Previous research work In the area of superconductivity has ignored the phenomena caused by lattice defects, Since the development of a microscopic theory by Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer [1], the mechanism of superconductivity as well as some aspects of the influence of lattice defects have become better understood, Lattice defects increase the residual resistance of a norma! metal at low temperatures and usually change the properties of T c , H c , and I c of the superconductor.
