Abstract

We investigate here the anisotropic magnetic and electric properties of aligned crystalline grains of YBa2Cu3O7-x. The microwave absorption is indeed consistent with the expected temperature behaviors of the resistivity in the normal state along the c axis and in the a-b plane. In the superconducting state, both the absorptions in pure rf electric and magnetic fields are high compared to the conventional superconductors; for the magnetic case activation energies are deduced and the dispersion is related to the diamagnetic susceptibility. These results are discussed qualitatively in relation to similar data obtained on single crystals and ceramic samples.
