Abstract

The ac response of anisotropic high-Tc superconductors in the mixed states is theoretically analyzed. The physical picture proposed by Geshkenbein, Vinokur and Fehrenbacher together with the theory of thermally assisted flux flow is generalized to include the material anisotropy. The results show that the transition in the real part and the peak in the imaginary part of magnetic ac permeability are due to skin effect and, additionally, related to the sample dimensions. For an isotropic superconductor, the infinite slab geometry exhibits a maximum peak absorption, while a minimum dissipation peak is obtained in the case of a square rod. The peak frequency in the infinite slab is, however, the lowest as compared with other finite prisms. In the very anisotropic superconductors, the thin edges lower the dissipation peak and raise the peak frequency as well. Dependence of the irreversibility line in the mixed state on the geometric factor is therefore suggested.
