Abstract

Flux distributions of partial-melting processed Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ ceramics are obtained using magneto-optic imaging. In remanent states (μ0Ha = 0 T), large amounts of trapped flux are observed along (Sr,Ca)2CuOy particles embedded in the Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ matrix. Despite the relatively large size of these particles (up to 30 μm), the pinning effect is similar to that of Y2BaCuO5 particles in melt-processed YBa2Cu3O7-δ. Furthermore, we discuss how the pinning capability of non-superconducting particles of different sizes and densities will show up in magneto-optic images.
