          Abstract

          Mo-substituted triple perovskite superconducting samples with the stoichiometric composition La(1.5)Nd(0.5)Ca(1)Ba(2)[Cu(1-x)Mo(x)](5)O(z), [LNCBCuMO] with x = 0.00, 0.01, 0.03, 0.05 and 0.10, have been investigated using X-ray diffraction, electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility, magnetization and oxygen content measurements. The observed reduction in Tc with increasing Mo content (x) in LNCBCuMO, can be attributed to the decrease in hole concentration. Magnetization measurements as a function of temperature and field (H), exhibit an M-H hysteresis loop, which indicates moderate flux pinning, which can be attributed to the pinning centers created by Mo substitution at Cu sites. The critical current density, Jc, deduced from the M-H data satisfies the flux creep model.
