Abstract The critical current density and magnetic relaxation as a function of temperature and magnetic field are compared for the melt-processed YBCO with Ce or Pt additions. The pinning parameters estimated show an enhancement of current density, and consequently pinning force in the presence of Ce. The difference in pinning capabilities between the Ce- and Pt-added melt-processed YBCO samples is attributed to inherent differences in microstructure. It was observed that in the Ce-added sample… CONTINUE READING
