Title Relation between the Hall angle slope and the carrier density in oxygen-depleted YBa2Cu3Ox films Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 222 Issue 3-4 Pages 341-348

Abstract A detailed study of the Hall angle cot?H in YBa2Cu3Ox epitaxial thin films with various oxygen contents clearly shows the existence of a linear relation between the slope of cot?H versus T2 and the carrier density. The zero-temperature intercept C=cot?H(T=0 K) and the mobility at room temperature change substantially for an oxygen content x?6.6, indicating that both effects are closely related.

Title Influence of the oxygen content on the normal-state Hall angle in YBa2Cu3Oxn films Type Journal Article
Year 1993 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 47 Issue 9 Pages 5512-5515
Keywords
Abstract We report on measurements of in-plane resistivity ?ab(T) and Hall coefficient RH(T) in c-axis-oriented oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Oxn thin films. Independent of the changes induced in RH(T) and ?ab(T) by the oxygen depletion, a quadratic temperature dependence is observed for the Hall angle ?H. The slope of cot?H versus T2 decreases as the oxygen content xn is reduced and saturates in the Tc(xn)=60 K plateau region. The results are discussed in the framework of the two-dimensional Luttinger liquid theory as proposed by Anderson.

Title Linear relation between the Hall angle slope and the carrier density in YBa2Cu3Ox films Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 235-240 Issue PART 2 Pages 1369-1370
Keywords
Abstract A universal relation cot?H??{variant}/RHB = ?T2 + C for the Hall angle ?H has been experimentally observed served in a wide variety of high-Tc systems. In contrast to the linear temperature dependence of the resistivity ?{variant} or the inverse Hall coefficient R-1H, the T2-dependence of cot?H remains valid in under- and overdoped systems. We present a systematic study of cot?H(T) in oxygen deficient epitaxial YBa2Cu3Ox thin films. We find evidence for a linear relation between ?, the slope of cot?H versus T2, and the carrier concentration. Moreover, we find a steep increase in the intercept C = cot?H (T = 0) below x ? 6.6.

Title Growth of particle-free YBa2Cu3O7 films by off-axis sputtering Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 203 Issue 3-4 Pages 235-239
Keywords Copper oxides; Film growth; Film preparation; Magnetrons; Particles (particulate matter); Sputter deposition; Substrates; Superconductivity; Thin films; Yttrium compounds; Critical current density; Off axis single target magnetron sputtering; Particle free superconducting films; Yttrium barium copper oxides; Superconducting films
Abstract The preparation of good YBa2Cu3O7 thin films is often hindered by the production of non-stoichiometric particles which degrade the superconducting properties of the layer. A systematic study of films prepared by off-axis single target magnetron sputtering shows that the presence of copper-rich particles dramatically decreases the critical current density but does not affect the critical temperature. The formation of these particles can be avoided by carefully adjusting the position of the substrate with respect to the target. Films without off-stoichiometric particles have excellent superconducting properties.

Title Irreversibility line and critical currents in oxygen deficient YBa2Cu3Ox ceramics Type Journal Article

Abstract The influence of oxygen concentration on the irreversibility line and critical current of polycrystalline YBa2Cu3Ox was determined using field and zero-field cooled magnetic measurements and magnetic hysteresis data. Although the field dependence of Tirr(H) is unchanged, the irreversibility line shifts to lower temperatures for decreasing oxygen content and the critical current density is strongly reduced.

Title The magnetic moment relaxation in oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 197 Issue 1-2 Pages 9-14
Keywords Magnetic Measurements – Relaxation; Oxygen – Concentration; Relaxation Processes – High Temperature Effects; Relaxation Processes – Magnetic Field Effects; Magnetic Moment Relaxation; Oxygen Deficiency; Yttrium Barium Copper Oxides; High Temperature Superconductors
Abstract The magnetic moment relaxation in polycrystalline YBa2Cu3Oxmaterial has been studied using zero-field-cooled measurements. The temperature dependence of the relaxation rate shows a field-dependent maximum. When the oxygen content is reduced, the maximum shifts towards lower temperatures. This shift is directly related to a decrease of the intragrain critical current density in the oxygen-deficient material, inducing a decrease of the field H* for complete flux penetration. The characteristic activation energies for depinning in the oxygen-deficient material are below 20 meV.

Title Observation of quantum creep in oxygen deficient YBa2Cu3O7-? at fields up to 7 T Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 235-240 Issue PART 5 Pages 2959-2960
Keywords
Abstract Superconducting current densities js and dynamic relaxation rates Q ? d ln js/d ln (dBe/dt) in an oxygen deficient YBa2Cu3O7-? epitaxial film were measured as a function of temperature (1.5K < T < Tirr) in magnetic fields up to 7 T by means of high sensitivity capacitance torquemeters. Below 5 K, the relaxation rate remains high and does not extrapolate to Q = 0 at T = 0K. This is associated to the quantum tunneling of vortices through the energy barrier separating two adjacent vortex configurations. In the case of ohmic dissipation the quantum creep rate is proportional to the normal state resistivity ?{variant}n(0) at T = 0 K. In order to check this theoretical prediction we measured Q as a function of the oxygen content of the sample. The quantum creep rate increases systematically with increasing ?{variant}n(0). However, Q remains finite even when ?{variant}n = 0.

Title Quantum creep and pinning properties of oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Oxn films Type Journal Article
Year 1996 Publication Physical Review B – Condensed Matter and Materials Physics Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. B Condens. Matter Mater. Phys.
Volume 54 Issue 2 Pages 1366-1381
Keywords
Abstract A high sensitivity capacitance torquemeter has been used for a comprehensive investigation of the induced current densities and dynamic relaxation rates in a YBa2Cu3Oxn film with nominal oxygen content varying between xn=6.55 and xn=7.0. The dynamic relaxation rate Q does not extrapolate to zero at T=0 K, indicating the presence of quantum creep. By changing the oxygen content of the film it is possible to investigate the relation between the quantum creep rate Q(0) and the normal-state resistivity pn(0) at low temperature. Although Q(0) increases monotonically with pn, it is found that Q(0) is not proportional to pn(0), in contrast to the predictions of a theory based on dissipative tunneling of collectively pinned single vortices [Blatter et al., Rev. Mod. Phys. 66, 1125 (1994)]. The experimental results imply that in YBa2Cu3O7 quantum creep takes place in a transition regime between Hall tunneling and dissipative tunneling. For lower oxygen contents the quantum creep regime moves towards the dissipative limit. For each oxygen content the characteristic pinning energy Uc(0) at T=0 is obtained by a linear extrapolation to T= 0 K of the T/Q versus T curves. The critical current density jc at T=0 is determined independently by a linear extrapolation of the measured Injs versus T curves. A power-law relation Uc(0)?[jc(0)]p with p? 0.5 is found, indicating single vortex pinning at higher temperatures. This is confirmed by a detailed analysis of the measured current densities and relaxation rates by means of the generalized inversion scheme developed by Schnack et al. [Phys. Rev. B 48, 13 178 (1993)]. For xn? 6.6 at Be= 0.6 T and for xn? 6.7 at Be= 2.0 T the calculated temperature dependence of jc and Uc agrees remarkably well with a model based on three-dimensional single vortex pinning caused by spatial fluctuations in the charge carrier mean free path. At lower oxygen contents and higher magnetic-fields the agreement gradually breaks down due to the increasing importance of thermal fluctuations.

Title Photoexcitation and oxygen ordering in YBa2Cu3Ox films Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 49 Issue 5 Pages 3675-3678
Keywords
Abstract We report on the photoinduced enhancement of the critical temperature ?Tc and the in-plane conductivity ??ab measured in a c-axis-oriented YBa2Cu3Ox film as a function of oxygen concentration (6.4?x?7). Both ?Tc and ??ab decrease with the oxygen content, display a plateaulike behavior for 6.6?x?6.75, and become zero at x=7. This dependence of ?Tc on x is similar to that observed for the Tc enhancement due to ordering effects in oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox single crystals. We propose that the persistent photoinduced changes in YBa2Cu3Ox films are due to photoassisted oxygen ordering.

Abstract We show through photoexcitation experiments carried out on YBa2Cu3Ox c-axis oriented films that photoinduced phenomena are not restricted to insulating samples. Superconducting films with critical temperatures varying between 2 K and 40 K show a clear enhancement of the superconducting transition after illumination. The increase in Tc is accompanied by a corresponding decrease in the resistivity ?, and an increase in the Hall coefficient RH, indicative of an increased carrier density. Furthermore, the carrier mobility is also affected by illumination.
