Paper Abstract

A dielectric host medium with spherical high-Tc superconducting particles embedded is considered. The nonlinear electromagnetic field response of the composite superconductor material is calculated using a time-dependent Landau Ginzburg model. Specifically, the authors predict a strong frequency dependence of the nonlinear susceptibility, field intensity dependence of the transition temperature, and third harmonic generation. The mechanism for the nonlinearity is the breaking of quasi-particle bonds by the electromagnetic field.
