Recently, particles with the chemical composition Y2Ba 4CuMOx where M U, Nb, Zr, etc., and sizes in the range of 50 - 200 nm have been generated within the YBCO matrix of bulk, melt-processed superconductors in order to serve as effective flux pinning sites. By means of AFM and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) measurements, we analyse the spatial distribution and the size distribution of these nanoparticles within the superconducting YBCO matrix.
