Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Stability of a one-dimensional composite superconductor subjected to a thermal disturbance is studied by considering, in addition to the amount of disturbance energy, the effect of the disturbance temperature profile. An analysis is conducted for the stationary thermal condition, and the result is compared with the transient solution in terms of characteristic functionals. It is shown that a map involving two characteristic functionals can precisely characterize the recovery-quenching behavior of the superconductor.
