Abstract: a b s t r a c tNanoparticles of the type M-2411 (with M = U, Nb, Zr, Ag, etc.) can be embedded within the superconducting YBCO matrix to provide flux pinning sites. Among all these types of nanoparticles, the Ag-2411 particles are special in the sense that they may provide also metallic Ag particles to be formed within the superconductor. The addition of metallic Ag (or silver oxide) was shown to be a means to create a more stable system by filling cracks and voids. Using the advanced polishing method of the …
