Abstract

Following the measurements of anisotropy and hysteresis in transport critical currents with changing temperature and polarity of magnetic field, a.c. magnetic measurements by the Campbell method were performed for sintered Ln-Y-Ba-Cu-O superconductors. The information derived from them indicated that hysteresis does not occur in the intragrain current but in the intergrain one. The results are interpreted in terms of flux pinning, where the anisotropy originates from the texture structure and hysteresis is associated with the superconducting weak links of the sintered oxide pellets.
