Samples of YBa2Cu3Ox (123) with excess Y2BaCuO5 (211) in the molar ratio of 5:1 ( 123/211) were processed using the “solid liquid melt growth” (SLMG) technique. The effect of hold time above the peritectic on the magnetic properties was examined. Extended hold times above the peritectic during processing degrade the magnetic properties of SLMG processed 123. In SLMG 123, the very fine (>100 nm) 211 particles produced by this processing route are the primarymagnetic flux pinners. Extended hold… CONTINUE READING
