Title: Fabrication of large domain YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} for magnetic suspension applications

Abstract

Large domain YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub x} levitators have been fabricated using a seeded melt processing technique. Depending upon the seed, either a single or five domained sample can be obtained. The grain boundaries separating each domains in the five domain levitator are found to be 90 degrees. Similar levitation forces can be observed for single and five domained samples. After thermal cycling, however, a small decrease in the levitation force of the five domain levitator was observed as a function of thermal cycles while nearly no change in force was observed in the single domain levitator. Finally it is shown that both, single and five domain YBCO, behave similarly as a function of sample thickness.
