Java Videos of Simulations of Vortex Motion in Superconductors

The videos show computer-simulated "top views" (views from above the sample, or "bird's views") of magnetic field lines penetrating superconductors, when the external magnetic field is slowly ramped up.
The motion of penetrating magnetic field lines in superconductors can exhibit "stick-slip" type motion and collective "jamming" that resembles transport in other systems (e.g., grains of sand, colloids, dielectric breakdown).
(NOTE: Netscape 3.0 or higher is required to view these Java videos.)
