Abstract

Magnetization loops were measured on struts of superconducting YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO) foams taken from various positions of a 5 &#x00D7; 2 &#x00D7; 2 cm3 large foam sample prepared at RWTH Aachen. From these data, flux pinning forces, <formula><tex>$F_p = j_c$</tex></formula> &#x00D7; B, were calculated and pinning force scaling diagrams <formula><tex>$F_p/F_{p,max}$</tex></formula> vs. h = Ha/Hirr were established. The scaling in the temperature range 60 K &lt; T &lt; 90 K was found to be well developed for all samples with peak positions, h0, above 0.4, which is an indication of <formula><tex>$\delta T_c$</tex></formula>-pinning. From microstructure analysis using the electron backscatter diffraction technique (EBSD) it is known that the struts are fully converted into the 123-phase with embedded 211 particles being relatively small. The variation of <formula><tex>$F_p$</tex></formula> depending on the position of the struts in the original sample directly reveals the changes of the texture as found employing EBSD.
