Thermoelectric transport effect in superconducting indium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A magnetic flux has been generated within a hollow toroidal cavity whose walls consisted of superconducting indium and lead. The origin of the flux is attributed to a thermoelectric transport effect induced by a temperature gradient in the toroid. The flux was found to diverge rapidly near the transition temperature of indium and to be several orders of magnitude larger than predicted by existing theory.
