Publications, 15 May 2023

We offer to your attention a preprint “Effect of 132Xe27+ ions irradiation at different angles on the critical parameters of the second generation HTSC tapes based on GdBa2Cu3O7−x” P14-2022-68 issued by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are L. K. Antonova (Moscow Polytechnic University), V. К. Semina (FLNR JINR), А. V. Тroitskiy (Prokhorov General Physics Institute).

Effects of 132Xe27+ (167 MeV) ion irradiation at inclination of 20°, 30°, 60°, and 90° relative to the tape surface on critical parameters of the 2nd generation HTSC tapes based on GdBa2Cu3O7−x, produced by company SuperOx, were studied. Dependences of critical current at T = 77 К in self-magnetic field and of critical temperature on ion fluences for different angles of irradiation were established. Radiation resistance of superconductor to swift ion irradiation was identified as a function of irradiation angles.

The study has been carried out at the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions JINR and sent to the journal “Physics of Metals and Metallography”.
