High harmonics ac susceptibility measurements joint with neutron irradiations on quasi-bi-dimensional high temperature superconductor (quasi-2D-HTSC) are good tools to study the flux dynamics and its interaction with pinning processes in these superconductors. Flux neutron intensity of shows a deep change in the flux pinning dynamics in Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O (BSCCO) system. Third harmonic susceptibility signal increases in amplitude after the neutron irradiation, followed by a rise of the pinning and critical current. Moreover, after the irradiation, the measurements underline the demise of the anomalous peak effect (PE) associated with a three-dimensional/two-dimensional (3D/2D) flux lattice transition.
