Aspects of making a superconducting yttrium ceramic by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis
- 24 Downloads
Macrokinjetic features are considered for the combustion in oxygen of BaO2−Cu−Y2O3 mixtures, which produces the high-temperature superconductor yttrium barium cuprate YBa2Cu3O7−x. Studies have been made on how the initial temperature affects the combustion temperature and rate, and the critical temperature for self-ignition has been determined. Ultrasonic activation of the initial powders has an advantageous effect on the product quality. Thermal analysis has been applied to the activated mixtures, which indicates the reason for the rise in burning wave propagation rate and increase in conversion to the superconducting phase.
