Overview on the recent progress on Chevrel phases and the impact on the development of PbMo/sub 6/S/sub 8/ wires


The critical current density J/sub c/ of PbMo/sub 6/S/sub 8/ (PMS) wires has not reached a value required for industrial applications. However, large intragrain J/sub c/ has been observed, indicating that the grain connections play a dominant role in the J/sub c/ limitation. This behavior is similar to that of high-T/sub c/ oxides, where this limitation is… (More)
