Magnetization in dc magnetic fields and at different temperatures has been measured on the antiperovskite Li2Pd3B with a cubic structure composed of distorted Pd6B octahedrons. This material was recently found to exhibit superconductivity at 7–8 K. The critical fields Hc1(0) and Hc2(0) are determined to be 135 Oe and 4 T, respectively. Critical current density, scaling of the pinning force within the Kramer model, and irreversibility field data are presented. Several superconductivity parameters were deduced: Coherence length ξ=9.1 nm, penetration depth λ=194 nm, and Ginzburg–Landau parameter κ=21. The material resembles other boride superconductors from the investigated points of view.

    We consider the linearization of the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau system near the normal state. We assume that an electric current is applied through the sample, which captures the whole plane, inducing thereby, a magnetic field. We show that independently of the current, the normal state is...
