Abstract


  • In this work, we report on significantly enhanced critical current density (Jc) in MgB2 superconductor that was easily obtained by doping with a hydrocarbon, highly active pyrene (C16H10), and using a sintering temperature as low as ~600 °C. The processing advantages of the C16H10 additive include production of a highly active carbon (C) source, an increased level of disorder, and the introduction of small grain size, resulting in enhancement of Jc. ©2008 American Institute of Physics
