Abstract

In the present work, Bi-Pb-V-Sr-Ca-Cu-Ti-O bulk samples with nominal composition (BiPb)2V x Sr2Ca3Cu4−y Ti y O12+δ with x=0.2 and y=0.1, 0.2 and 0.3 compounds have been prepared by the melt-quenching method. The magnetoresistance of the samples has been measured for different values of the applied magnetic field. Using the resistivity data, the upper critical magnetic field H c2(0) at T=0 K was calculated. The coherence lengths at T=0 K were calculated from H c2(0) values. The thermally activated flux creep model has been studied in order to calculate the flux pinning energies. The results showed that H c2(0) varied from 152.5 to 60.4 T and the flux pinning energies varied from 515 to 184 meV at 0 T, with the content y.
