Evaluation of the phase composition of BPSCCO bulk samples by XRD- and susceptibility analysis

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper describes the comparison of the phase purity analysis, using XRD and AC-susceptibility measurements, on a number of BPSCCO samples, containing different ratios of the Bi-2212 and Bi-2223 phase. The differences observed in the results of both techniques were correlated with the growth mechanism of the Bi-2223 phase. The higher values for the percentage of the Bi-2223 phase observed in AC-susceptibility analysis, could be explained by the assumption that there is a specific distribution of the Bi-2212 and Bi-2223 phase during particle growth, resulting in shielding effects. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
