ABSTRACT
The derivation of the critical current or critical current density distribution from an analysis of the voltage-current characteristic of a composite superconductor is discussed. Critical current distributions have been obtained for three Nb-Ti composites in quite different metallurgical states. The distribution is shown to be markedly broadened when sausaged filaments produce an extrinsic limit on the composite critical current.

    The quantization of the critical current I[sub c] in a quantum point contact is studied on varying the number of free channels (varying the constriction width d[sub 0] in 2DEG). It is shown that the shape of the quantum I[sub c] is not universal and depends on the parameters of the contact, in...
