    • Abstract

       

      A comparison has been made of irreversibility temperature determined by four different methods in few specimens of lead (type-I) and niobium (type-II). The merger ofMZFC(T) andMFC(T) curves giveTr(H) values lower than those evident from vanishing the hysteresis in isothermal DC magnetization. The identification of peak temperature inxH(T) data withTr(H) is appropriate only if the contribution from changes in the normal state electrodynamics can be isolated and the peak is narrow. The appearance of differential paramagnetic effect inxH(T) data is adequate to imply reversibility, however, its efficacy to precisely locate irreversibility line remains to be established.
