Sintered bars of YBa2Cu3O7-x obtained by slip-casting are investigated for drying and sintering behaviour. High Jcm values (≈ 106 A/cm2 at 77 K) are obtained, although Jct values are low (≈ 102 A/cm2 at 77 K). Microstructural characterisation is undertaken on selected samples which demonstrate significant differences in physical density and critical current density.
