Abstract

A detailed discussion of critical current density and upper critical field for PbMo6S8 (PMS) is given. It is shown that PMS bulk as well as wire samples can be prepared with sufficient quality to observe the scaling law for the volume pinning force. Using the scaling law an estimation for the critical current density as a function of field and temperature was made. The study also indicates that a substantial improvement of the critical current density can be expected by optimizing the upper critical field without changing the microstructure. It is shown that the availability of high quality samples of EuMo6S8, to which PMS is similar, makes it possible to study separately the different physical parameters which determine the upper critical field in PMS.
