ABSTRACT
Presents a detailed analysis of the effect of heat treatments on the microstructure, magnetization, and transport properties of MgB[sub 2] wires produced by the powder-in-tube method. Measurement of the direct current transport critical current that can be increased or decreased by more than one order of magnitude as compared with the as-drawn wire, depending on the annealing parameters; Correlation of the changes in the critical current with changes in the microstructure.
