Microstructural and electrical characterization of bulk YBa2Cu3O7−δ ceramics

Abstract : The value of critical current density at 77 K in “zero” applied field (Jc) characterizing the superconducting state for YBa2Cu3O7−δ ceramics is closely related to the microstructure. The interrelationships between the microstructural factors such as pore volume fraction, oxygen content, average grain size, are complex. However, these factors also influence the normal state resistivity measured at room temperature (ρ300). We demonstrate how the current carrying cross section influences Jc and ρ300 in a similar way. Data, reported for two classes of YBa2Cu3O7−δ: small grain porous ceramics and larger-grain denser ceramics, reveal an approximate linear relation between ρ300 K and Jc. Extrapolation of this relation to a fully dense small grain YBa2Cu3O7−δ ceramic yields values of ρ300 = 0.4 mΩ cm and Jc = 103 A cm−2.
