Description

This talk will provide a short review of the different pinning mechanisms that operate in useful superconductors. We will consider both high kappa superconducting materials used for high field magnets and low kappa materials used for SRF. We will visualise the different pinning processes that operate and discuss the theoretical descriptions for such processes. Finally we will identify the experimental measurements best suited for characterising pinning
