Abstract

Abstract Influence of magnetic ordering of Fe clusters in two different cluster states of YBa 2 (Cu 0.94Fe 0.06) 3O 6+ y on the magnetic hysteresis (flux pinning related) is demonstrated. In the crystallographically more extended and ordered Fe cluster state, obtained by processing under reducing atmosphere and subsequent reoxygenation [N,O], magnetic order on the Fe cluster occurs near T N=25 K, while T c=81 K and a relatively high magnetic hysteresis, Δ M, strongly decreases above T N. For the conventionally air-cooled materials [O], with T c=69 K, magnetic order of the more disordered clusters occurs near T N=10 K and the relatively lower Δ M again strongly decreases above T N. Flux pinning is therefore enhanced by the onset of magnetic ordering in the Fe clusters.
