Abstract

We fabricated large-grain c-axis-oriented Gd-Ba-Cu-O bulk superconductors with very fine 211 particles and studied their field-trapping properties. Single domain Gd-Ba-Cu-O/Ag bulk samples with different molar ratios of Gd-123:Gd-211 = 10:x (x = 2 to 6) were melt-textured under controlled oxygen partial pressure of 1.0% by employing Gd-211 starting powders with a particle size of 1.0 μm. The maximum trapped magnetic field of 2.0 T was recorded at 77 K in the bulk 48 mm in diameter with the composition of x = 5. It is notable that the trapped field in the space of two Gd-Ba-Cu-O bulks reached an extremely high value of 3.3 T at 77 K. Furthermore, the field-trapping performance of the bulk sample was improved by applying the ultra-fine 211 powders of a size of 0.2 μm. The single-bulk Gd-Ba-Cu-O 50 mm in diameter exhibited a trapped field of 2.6 T at 77 K.
