It is observed that the hysteresis in the applied magnetic field position and the intensity at the peak of the low field non-resonant microwave absorption (recorded in an EPR experiment with a modulation amplitude of ∼ 10 G) in the superconducting state of the cuprate superconductors, is time-dependent after the removal of a DC magnetic field sizably greater than the lower critical field. This intrinsic time-dependence, which we attribute to flux creep, is reported here for two copper oxide-based high temperature superconductors.
