Abstract

The use of the superconducting proximity effect to eliminate supercooling in a type I superconductor is reported. This effect has been demonstrated to be completely successful when applied to a tungsten specimen. It has also been employed to firmly establish new low upper bounds on the possible superconducting transition temperature of Mg, Ag, and Au.
