Y123 samples with varying amounts of added Y211, PtO 2 and CeO 2 have been melt processed and quenched from temperatures between 960°C and 1100°C. The microstructures of the quenched samples have been characterized using a combination of x-ray diffractometry, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, microprobe analysis, energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy and wavelength-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy. The Ba-Cu-O-rich melt undergoes complex changes as a function of temperature and time. A region of stability of BaCuO 2 (BC1) and BaCu 2O 2 (BC2) exists below 1040°C in samples of Y123 + 20 mol% Y211. Ba 2Cu 3O 5 is stabilized by rapid quenching but appears to separate into BC1 and BC2 at lower quenching rates. PtO 2 and CeO 2 additions affect the distribution and volume fractions of the two Ba-Cu-oxide 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.
