In this paper, the physical and superconducting properties of BizSr(2)Ca(1-x)Na(x)Cu(2)O(8+delta) with x=0.0, 0.05, 0.075, 0.1, and 0.20 textured superconducting fiber rods prepared by a laser floating zone (LFZ) technique were studied. The effects of Na+1 substitution for Ca2+ have been investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), transport measurements, dc-magnetization, magnetic hysteresis and magnetic critical current density. The powder XRD patterns of samples have indicated that Bi-2212 phase is the major one, independently of Na content. The best critical temperature, T-C, has been found as 93.3 K from M-T data for the sample with 0.075 Na substitution. The maximum magnetic J(C) value has been calculated as 1.35 x 10(5) A/cm(2) at 10 K for the 0.10 Na sample. The maximum transport critical current density has directly been measured as 1.3 x 10(3) A/cm(2) at 77 K for the 0.05Na sample. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l. All rights reserved.
