Eizinger, P. and Schoepe, Wilfried and Gloos, K. and Simola, J. T. and Tuoriniemi, J. T. (1992) Vibrations of a magnetic microsphere levitated above a superconductor: a high-Q oscillator for studies of vorticity in superconductors and superfluids. Physica B: Condensed Matter 178 (1-4), pp. 340-346.
The oscillations of a small magnetic sphere (radius 100 μm) levitated above a superconductor are investigated. Resonance frequencies between 300 Hz and 600 Hz are observed. At low amplitudes (≤1 gmm) the oscillator has Q values of about 106. At larger amplitudes both the resonance frequency and the damping become amplitude dependent. Nonlinear and hysteretic friction is attributed to vortex ...
