Other conclusions are: (a) the lowest, repeatable [I.sub.c] is not always the correct value, (b) overshoot or drift in the field can cause significant differences in the measured [I.sub.c] (c) a smooth sweep of field angles is needed to obtain reproducible results, (d) overshoot or variations in the temperature can change the measured [I.sub.c] and (e) similar hysteresis was observed at criteria of 0.1 [micro]V/cm and 1 [micro]V/cm.
