Large, single grains of Y?Ba?Cu?O (YBCO) bulk superconductor composed of a YBa2Cu3O7?? (Y-123) matrix with Y2BaCuO5 (Y-211) inclusions have been fabricated using a seeded infiltration and growth (IG) process. Y-211 precursor pellets prepared from powders containing different Y-211 particle sizes were processed by the seeded IG technique to investigate the effect of Y-211 size on the single grain microstructure. The superconducting properties of the single grains fabricated in this study are… CONTINUE READING
