Abstract

We have investigated the trapped-held characteristics of a rectangular-shaped Gd-Ba-Cu-O bulk (33 × 33 × 15 mm$^3$) magnetized by pulsed-field magnetization (PFM) using split- and solenoid-type coils. A soft iron yoke was set below the bulk for the solenoid coil and two yokes are inserted in the bores of the split coil. The maximum trapped held B$_{Zmax}$ at the center of the bulk surface was 1.73 T at 40 K in the case of the solenoid coil, with a distorted profile. On the other hand B$_{Zmax}$ was enhanced to 3.05 T at 40 K for the split coil with two yokes for which a symmetric trapped-held profile was observed. The behavior of the magnetic flux motion indicated two conditions for the enhancement of the trapped held: that the magnetic flux intrudes easily into the bulk even for lower applied fields and then saturates with minimal flux creep. We have also investigated the electromagnetic and thermal properties of the bulk during PFM using a numerical simulation in which the magnetic flux tended to align along the z-axis due to the presence of the soft iron yoke. The use of the split coil with two yokes is effective in enhancing the trapped held for the rectangular-shaped bulks.
