Preparation of Superconducting Y-Ba-Cu-O Thin Films by Mo-Cvd


High-Tc superconducting Y-Ba-Cu-O films were prepared on Mg0(100) substrate by MO-CVD technique without post annealing. The highest Tc obtained was 85K. The film was made up of dense matrix and dispersed fine particles. The Y-Ba-Cu composition of matrix was nearly equal to the 1:2:3 superconducting phase. The film was highly oriented with c-axis perpendicular to the substrate. The lattice constant of the film was 11.68A.
