In this research, a cheap and simple method was used in order to obtain a high-quality product. Low critical temperature of superconductors is the most important problem in these materials. Therefore, the aim of the research was to develop a method that can produce superconductive nanoparticles without significant decrease in the critical temperature as well as being able to be used in industries at a low cost. The cheap, simple and well-known sol-gel method was used in this research. As a result, the produced nanorods have critical temperature near the critical temperature of the material itself at bulk form, which is considered a big advantage for the product. Observations showed that the nanorods have homogenous shape. The shape and size of nanorods can be controlled by controlling the amount of surfactant.
