Preparation of MgB2 Rods Using a PIT Technique with the Explosive Consolidation Method
It was successfully prepared superconducting MgB2 rods with two double arrangements of tubes such as: Cu/Fe and Steel/Cu by the modified Powder-In-Tube (PIT) technique with explosive consolidation method. The metallographic observations and X-ray phase analysis of the obtained MgB2 rods were performed. These studies show that this type of consolidation permits to obtain MgB2 rods free from any voids and new phases.
