  • Shock wave formation of superconductive ceramic oxide electric and magnetic circuit elements with improved microstructures and mechanical properties. 10 figs.
  • Shock wave formation of thin layers of materials with improved superconducting and permanent magnetic properties and improved microstructures.
  • Shock wave formation of superconductive ceramic oxide electric and magnetic circuit elements with improved microstructures and mechanical properties.
  • Shock wave formation of thin layers of materials with improved superconducting and permanent magnetic properties and improved microstructures. The material fabrication system includes a sandwiched structure including a powder material placed between two solid members to enable explosive shock consolidation. The two solid members are precooled to about 80.degree.-100.degree. K. to reduce the residual temperatures attained as a result of the shock wave treatment, and thereby increase the quench rate of the consolidated powder.
  • A method for preparation of a class of fine grain solid materials having desirable superconducting or magnetic properties is described comprising the steps of: providing a first planar layer of a first predetermined solid material, with the first layer having a first end and a second end spaced apart from one another and facing one another along the plane defining the first planar layer; providing a second planar layer comprising a second predetermined material in powder form, with the second layer having a first end and a second end spaced apart from one another and facing one another along themore » plane defining the second planar layer; providing a third planar layer of a third predetermined solid material, positioned so that the second layer lies between and is transversely contiguous with the first layer and the third layer, with the third layer having a first end and a second end spaced apart from one another and facing one another along the plane defining the third planar layer; providing an open container for the first, second and third planar layers, providing a shock wave with velocity of propagation that is supersonic with respect to the speed of sound in each of the first, second and third predetermined materials; causing the shock wave to propagate substantially transversely through the first planar layer, the second planar layer and the third planar layer in that order so that the second layer of powder is compressed and heated to a temperature substantially as large as or greater than the highest melt temperature of the materials comprising the second layer, with an associated shock wave pressure of at least 50 kilobars.« less
