Pinning Force Anisotropy for HTS Wires
We investigate the pinning force anisotropy for BSCCO and YBCO commercial wires at 77 K. The pinning force is measured to 3 T and for all field angles. We show that the magnitude of the pinning force maximum as a function of applied field angle follows known statistical functions. The position of the maximum with field also follows these functions. This is a step towards a Dew-Hughes type scaling covering field, field angle and temperature for HTS wire.
