ABSTRACT
The pinning forces and trapped fields obtained in bulk YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7] (YBCO)-based material doped with Li are compared with results reported for melt-processed samples doped with Zn. The increase of the volume pinning force of Li doped material is twice that of Zn doped YBCO at 77 K. This leads to 20% higher magnetic fields trapped in the Li-doped sample at 77 K.

    Flux creep for textured Bi(Pb)-Sr-Ca-Cu-O tapes was investigated by means of dc magnetization measurement. Much improvement in flux pinning is attained by the grain orientation for a Bi-based oxide. However, flux-pinning energy U0 in a magnetic field of 10–85 kOe is as small as...

    The influence of pinning centers size on the superconducting properties was investigated. Through the addition of three batches of ZrO nano-particles with mean size of D=13 nm, D=21 nm, and D=85 nm, we have succeeded in incorporating effective artificial pinning centers within the YBCO matrix of...

    A uniform grain-oriented microstructure was developed in 50-mm-long bar samples of bulk YBa2Cu3Ox prepared by a partial melt growth process. In sharp contrast to previous reports, the textured products contained only small amounts of second phases. The samples were dense and nearly free of...

    High voltage electron microscopy showed that a [001] twist boundary is abundant in the Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O superconductor when it is prepared by a solid-state reaction method. It is certain that coincidence orientation boundaries such as ∑=13 and ∑=17 are preferred.
