Abstract

We have studied the effect of geometry on the trapped magnetic field in bulk Y-Ba-Cu-O superconductors by varying the thickness. The trapped field first increased with increasing thickness of the bulk superconductor, and then saturated when the thickness reached a certain value. We have also performed simulation studies based on the sand-pile model and the Biot-Savart law, which were in fairly good agreement with the experimental results.
