Abstract

A simple nitrate method has been evaluated for producing fine and uniform YBCO powders. A.c. susceptibility measurements have been used to investigate the influence of specific process parameters, i.e. reaction and sintering temperature. The results are correlated with microstructural analyses by SEM and TEM.
