ABSTRACT
We demonstrate that magnetization measurements by Hall probe arrays are well suited for the reel-to-reel determination of critical currents along long lengths of coated conductors. The technique is contact-free, fast, simple, and it has a high spatial resolution. A quantitative measure of the critical current as a function of position was obtained by fitting a simple critical state model to the field distribution. The technique is demonstrated for YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7] films on single-crystal substrates and then applied to samples of coated conductors. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
