A Modified Noncontact Method for Critical Temperature Measurements of High Temperature Superconductors
A significant breakthrough in the synthesis of high-Tc superconductors has been accomplished during the last three years.1 As large numbers of various experimental samples are produced, there is an increasing need for a rapid, non-contact method for their evaluation.
