Abstract

Dense polycrystalline samples of YBa2Cu3O7-δ with a high degree of c-axis texture in the plane of the sample were prepared by magnetic alignment. The c-axis infrared reflectivity was measured between 300 and 6K on polished surfaces. Spectra compare well with measurements on single crystals indicating that magnetically aligned samples are a reliable alternative to single crystals for c-axis measurements.
