    Single-crystal whiskers of Y1Ba2Cu3Ox with a length of about 5 mm were grown from a Te-doped precursor. The optimum nominal composition of the precursors was Y2Ba3Cu3Te0.5Ox. From the energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy measurement, Te was not detected in the whiskers. The current-voltage (I-V)...
