Abstract:

Macroscopic flux quantization in superconductors as found by Fairbank and Deaver is shown to be a consequence of well-known quantum mechanical laws. It is further shown that the factor of 2 in quantum unit hc2e is an indication of the pairing of electrons in the superconducting state. The intimate connection between the Meissner effect and flux quantization is discussed. Author
