The dynamic magnetic flux behavior in YBa2Cu3O x crystals made by the melt process was observed by using the Faraday effect of an iron garnet film with stripe magnetic domains. It was found that the overall flux gradient was in good agreement with that predicted by the critical state model. However, some samples contained a region where flux could not easily penetrate, indicating a large flux pinning force.
