Compound Superconductors

Compound superconductors exhibit type II magnetic behaviors, and they tend to have higher critical fields than type I superconductors. Otherwise they show the same superconducting behavior. The Abrikosov vortex lines, each consisting of a quantum flux and circulating supercurrents, are explained in terms of a supercondensate made up of condensed pairons. Exchange of optical and acoustic phonons are responsible for type II behavior.
