Abstract

The effect of nano size Ag addition on the YBa2Cu 3O7-δ (Y-123) system has been investigated. 2-15% weight of nano size Ag was added to the Y-123 system prepared by using the sol-gel-solid-state method. The phase purity was investigated by the powder X-ray diffraction method. Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDAX) was used to determine the distribution of nano Ag in the samples, and the microstructure was observed using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The transport critical current density was found to increase with increase in nano Ag content.
