Abstract

We present a microwave characterization of a DyBa(2)Cu(3)O(7-x) single domain, grown by the top-seeded melt-textured technique. We report the (a,b) plane field-induced surface resistance, Delta R(s)(H), at 48.3 GHz, measured by means of a cylindrical metal cavity in the end-wall-replacement configuration. Changes in the cavity quality factor Q against the applied magnetic field yield Delta R(s)(H) at fixed temperatures. The temperature range (70 K;T(c)) was explored. The magnetic field mu(0)H < 0.8 T was applied along the c axis. The field dependence of Delta R(s)(H) does not exhibit the steep, steplike increase at low fields typical of weak links. This result indicates the single-domain character of the sample under investigation. Delta R(s)(H) exhibits a nearly square-root dependence on H, as expected for fluxon motion. From the analysis of the data in terms of motion of Abrikosov vortices, we estimate the temperature dependences of the London penetration depth lambda and the vortex viscosity eta, and their zero-temperature values lambda(0)=165 nm and eta(0)=3x10(-7) N s m(-2), which are found in excellent agreement with reported data in YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7-x) single crystals. Comparison of microwave properties with those of related samples indicates the need for reporting data as a function of T/T(c) in order to obtain universal laws.
