The new optics are enabling microstructural studies that link nanoscale with micrometer-scale features in, for example, polymer-clay nanocomposites, gels, and fluxoid
lattices in superconductors.
Intermittency can be further studied in the framework of Ginzburg-Landau (GL) model as used to describe the confinement of magnetic fields into fluxoids
in type II superconductor, according to which, the ratio [d.sub.q]/[d.sub.2] should respect the relation
Such an approach also reflected Higgins's overriding emphasis on freedom: He and his fellow Fluxoids
pursued liberating impulses into realms bordering on anarchy, in an often irreverent effort to collapse the distinctions between art, life, and play.
This penetrating field exists within the material in the form of separate magnetic filaments, or lines of flux, called fluxoids
. The fluxoids
generally settle into a regular pattern, or lattice, often pinned in place by impurities or microscopic defects in the material.
