Title: Effect of nanosized Co{sub 0.5}Ni{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} on the transport critical current density of Bi{sub 1.6}Pb{sub 0.4}Sr{sub 2}Ca{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 10} superconductor

The effects of nano-sized Co{sub 0.5}Ni{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} addition on the superconducting and transport properties of Bi{sub 1.6}Pb{sub 0.4}Sr{sub 2}Ca{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 10} (Bi-2223) in bulk form has been investigated. Bi-2223 superconductor was fabricated using co-precipitation method and 0.01 – 0.05 wt% of Co{sub 0.5}Ni{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} nanoparticles with average size of 20 nm were added into the samples. The critical temperature (T{sub c}) and critical current density (J{sub c}) of the samples were measured by using the four-point probe method, while the phase formation and microstructure of the samples were examined using x-ray diffraction and SEM respectively. It was found that J{sub c} of all samples added with Co{sub 0.5}Ni{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} were higher than non-added sample, with x = 0.01 wt. % sample showing the highest J{sub c}. This study showed that small addition of nano-Co{sub 0.5}Ni{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 2}O{sub 4} can effectively enhance the transport critical current density in Bi-2223 superconductor.
