Abstract

The temperature dependence of the DC susceptibility χ(T) is measured between 1.7 and 350 K on superconducting and non-superconducting bulk melt-processed (Nd0.33Eu0.33Gd0.33)Ba2Cu 3Oy by means of SQUID magnetometry. A strong superconducting contribution is found to coexist with large paramagnetic moments provided by the Nd and Gd ions.
