Abstract

Transient effects in the microwave second-order response of YBaCuO powder are investigated. The time evolution of the second-harmonic signal has been measured for about 300 s after the sample had been exposed to variations of the DC magnetic field. We show that in different time scales the transient response has different origin. In the time scale of milliseconds the transient response of samples in the critical state is ascribable to processes of flux redistribution induced by the switching on/off of the microwave field. At longer times, the time evolution of the second-harmonic signal can be ascribed to motion of fluxons induced by the variation of the DC magnetic field. In particular, diffusive motion of fluxons determines the response in the first 10 s after the stop of the magnetic field variation; magnetic relaxation over the surface barrier determines the response in the time scale of minutes.
