Abstract:

In order to understand the physical behavior at the atomistic level of the superconducting metal matrix composites, both aluminumYBa2CU306x and silverYBa2CU306x composites have been investigated. The results suggest that silver forms superconducting composites in the concentration range 10-72 wt. . The aluminum based composites showed the superconducting property only for composites containing 60 wt. aluminum and 40 wt. YBa2CU306x. In addition, it was found that the superconducting behavior of the aluminum YBa2CU306x composites is very sensitive to the sintering temperature and the duration of sintering.
