The AC susceptibility has been investigated for the three different melt-processed samples: (Nd0.33Eu0.33Gd0.33)Ba2 Cu3O7-δ with the large secondary peak, NdBa2Cu3O7-δ with the moderate secondary peak and YBa2Cu3O7-δ with no secondary peak. We found that the imaginary part (χ″) value is higher for the sample which has the larger secondary peak. This suggests that the effect of the flux creep is more remarkable for the sample with the larger secondary peak.
