Observing the Percolation Effect in Thick Film Superconductors
Article publication date: 1 January 1994
A thick film superconductor paste has been produced to determine the properties of granulated superconductor materials and to observe the percolation effect. The base of the paste was chosen to be of the BiSrCaCuO system because of its high Tc and advantageous current density properties. For contacts, a conventional Ag/Pt paste was used. The critical temperature was between 110 K and 115 K depending on the printed layer thickness. The critical current density was between 200 and 300 A/cm2. The R‐T and U‐l functions were measured with different parameters (Imeasuring. Bexternal. Number of layers, T). The measurement results confirmed the conducting mechanism theory in the material. A percolation structure model was built and is described. Finally, some fundamental advantages and problems of the process are discussed and the high‐frequency electric field sensor realised is described.
