Abstract:

A silver coated superconducting ceramic powder made by 1 coating the superconducting ceramic powder particles with AgNO3 2 melting the AgNO3 SO that it wets and forms a uniform coating over the surfaces of the particles and 3 decomposing the AgNO3 to form a thin, uniform coating of silver metal on the surfaces of the particles. The product is a loose powder of superconducting ceramic particles which are uniformly coated with a thin layer of silver metal. The powder can be cold worked e.g., swaged, forged etc. to form superconducting structures such as rods or wires.
