Paper Abstract

Experimental results are presented on the effects of x-ray radiation on superconducting samples of polycrystalline YBaCuO and BiSrCaCuO. The radiation effects are detected at 4.2 K by changes of the magnetization of the sample using a SQUID magnetometer. In the presence of ionizing radiation, the changes in magnetization correspond to release of trapped flux, fluxon destruction, and low frequency noise due to flux flow.
