Scaling means failing

We published an article in Superconductor Science and Technology, opens an external URL in a new window, dealing with the effects of inhomogeneities on pinning force scaling in Nb3Sn superconductors. It turns out that when doing scaling analyses, a common tool for examining the pinning mechanism of superconductors, one has to be quite careful, since inhomogeneities in the material can easily lead to spurious results.
