Abstract: High temperature superconducting (SC) nanocomposites based on SC ceramics and various polymeric binders were prepared. Regardless of the size of the ceramics’ grains, the increase of their amount leads to an increase of resistance to rupture and modulus and a decrease in limiting deformation, whereas an increase in the average ceramic grain size worsens resistance properties. The SC, thermo-chemical, mechanical and dynamic-mechanical properties of the samples were investigated. Superconducting properties of the polymer ceramic nanocomposites are explained by intercalation of macromolecule fragments into the interstitial layer of the ceramics’ grains. This phenomenon leads to a change in the morphological structure of the superconducting nanocomposites.
Keywords: polymer-ceramic nanocomposites; superconducting; physical-mechanical; dynamical-mechanical properties; morphological structure
