The Role of Sample Preparation Techniques in Assessing Mechanical Damage in YBCO Superconducting Tapes
YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) is a high-temperature, high-field superconductor with promise for usage in high-field magnets. The superconductor lies within a composite tape that provides mechanical strength and allows for the correct ...
Investigating Metallographic Sample Preparation Techniques for BiSrCaCuO[8+x]
We developed effective sample preparation techniques to understand the complex Bi-2212 wire microstructure and to efficiently correlate its electrical and mechanical behavior.
Post-Delamination Structural Investigation of YBCO Superconducting Tape
YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) is a rare-earth based superconductor that is fabricated as a composite tape. Its properties make it a candidate for usage in high-field magnets at cryogenic temperatures. The structure of the tape includes ...
Characterization of Mechanical Properties of BiSrCaCuO[8-x] Superconductor Through Scanning Electron Microscopy
Bi-2212 is brittle and susceptible to mechanical damage. Our research seeks to understand why this damage occurs, and how it propagates through the material.
