The microstructures of YBa2Cu3O7-δ ceramics prepared from freeze dried powders and containing an excess of CuO have been studied by analytical electron microscopy. Special attention has been paid to the interfacial microstructure. It was found that a liquid phase formed during sintering between 890°C and 920°C and this promoted grain growth and densification. Both clean grain boundaries and boundaries containing an amorphous intergranular film, which was rich in Cu, have been observed. Both CuO and BaCuO2 were present as secondary phases.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
