Ceramic processing of magnesium diboride

Abstract:

This thesis describes the fabrication and characterization of ex situ magnesium diboride (MgB2) bulk material to study its sintering behaviour. Since the discovery of superconductivity in magnesium diboride in 2001, many research studies have identified the attractive properties of this easy-to-fabricate, low cost superconductor which can attain high critical current density even without heat-treatment. However there is little consensus in the literature on the processing requir...
