Propagating Normal Domains in Large Composite Superconductors with Transition Layer
We study nucleation and propagation of normal zone in large composite superconductors. We consider the case when a transition layer with high thermal and electrical resistance exists between the superconductor and the stabilizer. We treat the effect of this transition layer on the dynamics of normal zone. We show the existence of propagating normal domains for a wide range of parameters characterizing the composite.
