Abstract:

A bulk high-temp. superconductor single crystal MBa2Cu3O7-x, where M = Y, Sm, Eu, Gd, Dy, Ho, Er, or Yb; and x = ∼0.1 to ∼1.0, are produced by a novel process incorporating: (i) starting powders produced by combustion spray pyrolysis; (ii) a novel setter powder; and/or (iii) a monitored isothermal growth process.
