Abstract

We report the first observation of the time-domain development of phase-slip centers (PSC's). Using long one-dimensional indium microbridges that show PSC's on their dc I-V curves, we apply fast-rising current steps in excess of their critical currents, and observe the development of the PSC's in time. We find a current- and temperature-dependent delay time for the development of each PSC, which we explain in terms of a simple theory. © 1983 The American Physical Society.
