    • Cascade dynamics of thermomagnetic avalanches in superconducting films with holes 

      Vestgården, Jørn Inge; Colauto, Fabiano; de Andrade, AMH; Oliveira, AAM; Ortiz, W. A.; Johansen, Tom Henning (2015)
      The submicrosecond dynamics of thermomagnetic avalanches in superconducting films with nonconducting holes (antidots) is considered. When such an avalanche reaches a hole, it is quickly filled with magnetic flux, and often ...
    • Dendritic flux avalanches in a superconducting MgB2 tape 

      Qureishy, Thomas; Laliena, Carlos; Martínez, Elena; Qviller, Atle Jorstad; Vestgården, Jørn Inge; Johansen, Tom Henning; Navarro, Rafael; Mikheenko, Pavlo (2017)
      Tapes of MgB2 with high critical current have a significant technological potential, but can experience operational breakdown due to thermomagnetic instabilities. Such events are routinely registered by magnetisation ...
    • Nucleation and propagation of thermomagnetic avalanches in thin-film superconductors (Review Article) 

      Vestgården, Jørn Inge; Johansen, Tom Henning; Galperin, Yuri (2018)
      Stability of the vortex matter—magnetic flux lines penetrating into the material—in type-II superconductor films is crucially important for their application. If some vortices get detached from pinning centres, the energy ...
    • Oscillatory regimes of the thermomagnetic instability in superconducting films 

      Vestgården, Jørn Inge; Galperin, Yuri; Johansen, Tom Henning (2016)
      The stability of superconducting films with respect to oscillatory precursor modes for thermomagnetic avalanches is investigated theoretically. The results for the onset threshold show that previous treatments of nonoscillatory ...
