Abstract

The effect of different nanosized Co3O4 (10, 30, and 50 nm) addition on the Bi1.6Pb0.4Sr2Ca 2Cu3O10(Co3O4) x superconductor with x = 0 - 0.05 wt.% has been investigated using X-ray diffraction method, scanning electron microscopy, transition temperature, and critical current density J c measurements. The samples were prepared by the conventional solid-state reaction method. Samples with x = 0.01 wt.% Co 3O4 (10 nm) showed the highest T c - zero at 102 K. The highest J c was observed in the x = 0.03 wt.% Co3O4 (10 nm) and x = 0.02 wt.% Co3O4 (30 nm) samples. At 77 K, J c of the 10 nm and 30 nm Co3O4 added samples was 6 and 13 times larger than the nonadded samples, respectively. Small addition of Co 3O4 nanoparticles in the Bi1.6Pb 0.4Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 (Bi-2223) samples enhanced the critical current density and the phase formation. The larger Co3O4 nanoparticle (50 nm) had a greater degradation affect on superconductivity of the Bi-2223 phase.
