Magnetization Anisotropy in the Textured Bi-2223 HTS in Strong Magnetic Fields

Gokhfeld, D. M.; Balaev, D. A. Physics Of The Solid State. DOI

The origin of the low magnetization anisotropy of the textured bulk samples consisting of highly anisotropic (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox (Bi-2223) high-temperature superconductor crystallites has been investigated. It has been established that the observed anisotropy is determined by the disordering of Bi-2223 crystallites in the sample. The measured anisotropy of the textured sample makes it possible to determine the magnetic angle characterizing the ordering of crystallites.
