Abstract : A Faraday unipolar inductor using a solid cylinder of a nonideal type II superconductor (unannealed Nb) constitutes a zero internal impedance generator capable of supplying appreciable electrical power and permits continuous study of the behavior of the average internal magnetic field vs the applied field. The various contributions to the observed emf are discussed in terms of the relativistic interpretation of Faraday unipolar induction. (Author)
