Abstract

Thick films of Hg0.8Pb0.2Ba2Ca2Cu3O 8+δ (HgPb1223) superconductor were fabricated by dip-coating Pb0.2Ba2Ca2Cu3O7+δ precursor onto Ag and subsequently reacting in Hg vapor to form the superconducting phase. It was found that by "burying" the films in precursor powder during the reaction, increased HgPb1223 phase purity and increased size of aligned grain colonies were obtained. Such microstructural improvements lead to wider magnetization hysteresis. The optimum superconducting transition temperatures of 133 K were observed in these films. The results showed that this process has a positive influence on the formation and growth of HgPb1223. A pre-pressing process enabled the growth of HgPb1223 grains with relatively dense microstructure and improved connectivity. The resulting films exhibited a transport Jc value of at least 1.5 × 103 A/cm2 at 4.2 K in a zero magnetic field.
