Abstract

A method is described for preparing high density ceramic superconductors based on compounds such as La-xMxCuO4-y (where M=Ca,Sr,Ba); M, Ba2Cu3O7 (where M=Y or rare earth); BiSrBaCuxOy (where x=1,2,3); or TlCaBaCuxOy (where x=1,2,3,4,5) which display superior critical currents and magnetic field tolerance than those prepared by conventional ceramic processing techniques.
