Abstract

Specimens of nanometric lead dispersion in a glassy Al-Cu-V matrix were synthesized by rapid solidification of the corresponding melt. The microstructures were designed to avoid superconducting percolation due to the coupling of the neighboring particles by the proximity effect. These specimens were used to determine the effect of the size of the ultrafine lead particles on the superconducting transition.
