Abstract

Large Nd1+xBa2-xCu3Oy (Nd123ss) single crystal cubes of side 3 mm were fabricated isothermally by the flux method. The crystals exhibited a Tc of 95 K with a sharp superconducting transition. One crystal was cut into small pieces, and its magnetic properties were measured to study the spatial distribution of the superconducting properties. It was found that although Tc values were almost constant, a small but significant intrinsic difference in the Jc-B properties and irreversibility field was observed depending on the sample position. This suggests that the distribution of Nd-rich Nd123ss clusters are spatially different even within the same single crystal. Such differences may be caused by the time variation of Nd concentration in the liquid during crystal growth.
