We report the results of an investigation of microwave power loss at 10 GHz in YBCO at 77 K. The samples are melt-textured YBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub 7/ (123) with 28 mole % Y/sub 2/BaCuO/sub 5/ (211) inclusions and x% of Ag added to bridge the gaps at the grain boundaries. The sample with 10% Ag shows critical currents >10/sup 8/ amp/m/sup 2/ at 77 K… CONTINUE READING
