Abstract

THE FABRICATION PROCESS OF YBCO SUPERCONDUCTING COMPOUNDS HAS BEEN OPTIMISED. SINGLE-PHASE SAMPLES OF FORMULA UNIT YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X) HAVE BEEN FABRICATED AND TESTED BY X-RAY DIFFRACTION AND BY RESISTANCE VS. TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS. THE SAMPLES HAVE CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (MID-POINT) OF THE RESISTIVE TRANSITION) T(C) = 92 Q0.5K, SHOW A REMARKABLE MEISSNER EFFECT, AND CAN BE LEVITATED BY AN APPROPRIATELY SHAPED MAGNETIC FIELD.
