Abstract

The alignment and the formation of (Bi, Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 inside an Ag sheath were investigated for tapes from four different precursor powders. Microstructural characterization along with in situ transmission x-ray diffraction experiments revealed that the kinetics depended strongly on the processing technique and the phase assemblage of the precursors. The alignment process was governed by the preferential grain growth of the Bi-cuprates along the a-b plane and the constraint applied by the sheath. The formation mechanism of (Bi, Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 was either the intercalation or the nucleation and growth, depending on whether excessive liquid is adjacent to the platelets.

37. The heat treatment schedule for tape C was what is stated in Sec. II. However, tape B was ramped to 770 °C within 2 h and then ramped to 840 °C at 10 °C/h. Thus, unfortunately, the heat-treatment schedules for these tapes were not the same. However, the differences in the general characteristics of the alignment and the Bi(2223) growth between these tapes were intrinsic; i.e., all of the tapes with the spray pyrolysis completed alignment before the formation of Bi(2223) initiated under various temperature ramp schedules while the alignment for tapes C and D completed with the growth of Bi(2223).
