Enhanced flux pinning from CuO inclusions in Bi2Sr2CaCu2Oy crystals

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Bi2Sr2CaCu2Oy (Bi2212) crystals with CuO inclusions were grown on the surface of KCl flux. The density of CuO incorporations of 109/cm2 was similar to that for Y2BaCuOy in melt-textured YBa2Cu3Oy. The CuO inclusions are needlelike particles with diameter of less than 1 μm. Magnetization measurements show enhanced flux pinning at high magnetic field, compared to crystals without CuO. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
