Abstract

The present investigation focuses on the microstructure and chemical analysis of the in-air processed SmBa2Cu3Oy (Sm-123) sample with 3 wt% BaO2 and 20 wt% Ag2O addition. DC magnetization measurements showed a sharp superconducting transition with onset Tc at around 94.5 K. The critical current density (Jc) at 77 K and zero field was 24 kA/cm2. SEM analysis indicated dispersion of submicron secondary phase particles in the Sm-123 matrix. SEM by EDX analysis confirmed that matrix chemical ratio at various locations of the pellet was uniform. Trapped magnetic field profile analysis confirmed that samples were single grain. The sample with size of 12 by 12 mm and 5 mm thickness showed the trapped field on top surface 0.26T at liquid nitrogen temperature. The results indicate that content of BaO2 is crucial for improving utilization parameters of the bulk Sm-123 material melt-processed in air.
