Abstract: Thermally activated flux motion and specific electric resistance in Y358 were studied under different magnetic fields ranging from 0 to 15 kOe. Through investigating the broadening of normal-superconducting transition, we found that the thermally-activated-flux-motion model can describe the electronic effect near the superconducting transition temperature. By modifying this model, specific electric resistance at different magnetic fields was calculated.
Keywords: high-Tc superconductor; thermally activated flux motion; transition temperature

    It has been brought to our attention by a reader of Materials that substantial portions of this article [1] have been translated from another publication [2] without credit. After confirming this to be the case with the authors, we have determined that indeed this manuscript clearly violates our policy of originality of all material submitted for publication and the generally accepted ethics of scientific publication. Consequently, the Editorial Team and Publisher have determined that it should be retracted. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. [...]
