1991 (English)In: Superconductor Science and Technology, volume 4, Special Issue 1S: Proceedings of LT-19 Satellite Conference on High Temperature Superconductivity, Cambridge 1990, Bristol: Adam Hilger , 1991, S97-S99 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Utilizing AC susceptibility measurements the authors have investigated the inter and intragranular properties of selected bulk materials under hydrostatic pressures to 3.5 GPa. A single phase Tl2CaBa2Cu2O8 sample with superconducting transition temperature Tc approximately=107 K shows a clear maximum in Tc(P) at approximately 2.2 GPa coupled with a nearly twofold increase to 3 GPa of the intergranular critical current density JcJ near Tc. The second sample, a YBa2Cu4O8 sinter, shows a large linear increase in Tc with pressure (+5.5 K/GPa) as well as a fivefold increase JcJ to 3 GPa. Applying a critical state model, the authors find that Tc(P) varies as lambda g-2(P), where lambda g is the intragranular (London) penetration depth.
