Abstract

Instabilities of the critical state ("turbulence") are observed in various high-Tc single crystals by means of magneto-optic (MO) imaging. Using the same samples as in the MO investigations, we observe characteristic steps in the magnetic moment measured by means of a SQUID magnetometer, which allows a continuous temperature sweep. A direct correlation between the steps and the MO images is established. Using these SQUID measurements, a much wider range of field and temperature can be covered. As a result, we find turbulence not only in a narrow temperature window but also in a field window ranging between 0 and 80 mT. Flux turbulence is also observed in magnetization loops. Furthermore, we present tests for turbulence in several different high-Tc samples.
