Structural, Morphological and Theoretical Modeling Studies on Polymer Composites of Nano Crystalline Ceramic Superconductor GdBa2Ca3Cu4010.5+?

Vinila V.S, Jayakumari Isac

Abstract: Ceramic powder synthesis as a field of materials processing is undergoing rapid expansion. Modern ceramics have huge applications in electronics, aerospace, automotive, medical, etc. Composite materials are attracting much interest for technical applications and fundamental research. The blending of different sorts of materials produces composite structures which can combine different material properties or may reveal novel properties not existing in the constituent phases. High temperature superconducting materials, like many other ceramics, are inherently brittle in nature and therefore pose problems in converting them into simple usable forms such as flexible wires, shapes, sheets etc. In this section the authors describes a method for the preparation of Gadolinium Barium Calcium Copper Oxide, GdBa2Ca3Cu4010.5+? (GBCCO)- super conducting ceramic powder materials based on pre-calcinations of oxides. In order to show the viability of the proposed method, super-conducting powder was prepared in special furnace. By using the classical polymer processing of converting raw polymeric materials into finished products of desirable shape and macromolecular structure, morphology, polymer is blended with ceramic superconductor GdBa2Ca3Cu4010.5+? to form a new product. The results are analyzed by X-ray Diffraction (XRD), SEM, and EDX. This product is analyzed, characterized and property studies are done and found to be useful in many applications. Young?s moduli of the composites are calculated by using different equations in theoretical modeling.
