The Use of Toroidal Geometries in Investigations of Thermoelectricity in Superconductors

  • D. J. Van Harlingen
  • J. C. Garland


An analysis is given of a toroidal sample configuration used to study thermoelectricity in superconducting metals. The toroidal geometry is shown to be highly effective in discriminating against extraneous magnetic flux while having a high sensitivity to the desired signal flux. Details of the flux transformation equations are given, and it is shown that flux amplification can take place if circuit parameters are properly chosen.
