Title: Structural, Electric and Magnetic Properties of Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}Ag{sub 0.03}Ca{sub 1}Cu{sub 2}O{sub y} Ceramics Modified by Post-annealing

Abstract

Polycrystalline Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}Ag{sub 0.03}Ca{sub 1}Cu{sub 2}O{sub y} samples were fabricated using conventional solid-state reaction method. Then, post-annealing temperatures at 730, 780 and 830 {sup ∘}C were applied on samples while time was kept constant at 50 h. Both the x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement and the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that all samples have high amounts of Bi-2212 phase as the main phase, indicating that the selected starting composition is suitable to analyze the post-annealing effects on the flux pinning properties of Bi-2212 superconductors. In particular, flux pinning performance of Bi-2212 phase is observed from both the magnetic hysteresis loops and J{sub c} values calculated using Bean’s model. The highest J{sub c} value was obtained for sample which was not exposed to the post-annealing treatment. The results clearly show that post-annealing procedure in Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}Ag{sub 0.03}Ca{sub 1}Cu{sub 2}O{sub y} system does not create artificial pinning centres, which lead to the improvements in J{sub c} at high magnetic fields.
