Percolating granular superconductors



Percolating granular superconductors



Physical Review. E Statistical Nonlinear and Soft Matter Physics 67(4 Pt 2): 046115



We investigate diamagnetic fluctuations in percolating granular superconductors. Granular superconductors are known to have a rich phase diagram including normal, superconducting, and spin-glass phases. Focusing on the normal-superconducting and the normal-spin-glass transition at low temperatures, we study the diamagnetic susceptibility chi((1)) and the mean square fluctuations of the total magnetic moment chi((2)) of large clusters. Our work is based on a random Josephson network model that we analyze with the powerful methods of renormalized field theory. We investigate the structural properties of the Feynman diagrams contributing to the renormalization of chi((1)) and chi((2)). This allows us to determine the critical behavior of chi((1)) and chi((2)) to arbitrary order in perturbation theory.
