Abstract

Abstract We have used guided optical waves to locally illuminate superconducting thin lead strips and measured the critical current as a function of optical power. The measured results resemble the predictions of a simple heating model more closely than the Parker T ∗ model in the temperature range investigated (5.5 K to T c ) and several possible reasons for this behavior are discussed.
