Dr. Broussard Publishes Research Article

In July 2017, an article by Professor of Physics Dr. Phillip Broussard was published in the Journal of Low Temperature Physics. The article’s title is “Parallel Critical Field in Thin Niobium Films: Comparison to Theory”.

 

"The focus of the paper,” says Dr. Broussard, “was to compare between two substantially different theoretical descriptions of what happens to thin superconducting films when a magnetic field is applied along the film surface. The work was able to exclude one theoretical approach, but still there remains an open question about how well the other theory could explain the data.”

 

Former Covenant student Amy Davis ’17 contributed to the work. Davis is presently working for the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Grounds.
