Title Photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Journal of Superconductivity Abbreviated Journal J Supercond
Volume 7 Issue 1 Pages 127-130
Keywords photoconduction; Superconductivity; thin films; Copper oxides; Hall effect; Order disorder transitions; Radiation effects; Superconductivity; X ray analysis; Josephson coupling; Oxide superconductors; Yttrium barium cuprates; High temperature superconductors
Abstract The photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity in RBa2Cu3Ox (R=rare earth or yttrium) and PryR1-yBa2Cu3Ox was explored through temperature-dependent resistivity, Hall coefficient and mobility, and x-ray diffraction measurements. The increases in Tc are enhanced near the metal-insulator transition, although photoinduced changes always exist in oxygendeficient samples. Several explanations, including intergrain Josephson coupling, photoassisted oxygen ordering, and the trapping of photogenerated electrons in oxygen vacancies, are discussed.

Title Influence of field inhomogeneity on the magnetization of YBCO films Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 225 Issue 3-4 Pages 337-345
Keywords Magnetization; Superconducting films; SQUID magnetometers; Superconducting ceramics; YBCO superconductors; High temperature superconductors
Abstract DC magnetization data of superconducting thin YBCO films, measured by means of a magnetometer in which the sample is pulled through a set of pick-up coils, are often calculated from pick-up signals which clearly deviate from the ideal response. We show how these signal distortions influence the values obtained for the magnetization, and present a simple model that enables one to simulate the temperature dependence of these distorted pick-up signals, in the case of low-field magnetization measurements. The model is based on the magnetic field inhomogeneity of the magnetometer, in combination with the hysteretic magnetization of the superconducting sample. Optimum values for the model parameters are derived and discussed.

Title Effect of room temperature annealing on the properties of oxygen- deficient YBa2Cu3Ox films Type Journal Article
Year 1993 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 206 Issue 1-2 Pages 51-58
Keywords Annealing; Ceramic materials; Hall effect; Superconducting films; Yttrium compounds; Critical current density; Oxide superconductors; Yttrium barium copper oxides; High temperature superconductors
Abstract Annealing at room temperature of quenched oxygen-depleted YBa2Cu3Oxn (6.5?xn<6.8) films, produces a clear increase in the critical temperature Tc and current density Jc, while the normal state resistivity ?{variant}xx and Hall coefficient RH decrease as a function of annealing time, indicating an increase in carrier density. The enhancement of the critical current density Jc is more pronounced at high fields and temperatures due to a shift of the irreversibility line, which scales with the increasing Tc. The observed changes are accompanied by corresponding changes in the crystalline structure, which can be related to oxygen ordering effects.

Title Magnetic properties of oxygen deficient Yba2Cu3Ox thin films 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 2889-2890
Keywords
Abstract We have invesitgated several superconducting properties of oxygen defiecient YBa2Cu3Ox thin films, with oxygen contents ranging from x = 6.55 to x = 7. By means of torque magnetometry, the temperature dependence of the superconducting current dendity js and relaxation rate of the magnetization Q is measured in an (almost perpendicular) applied magnetic induction of 0.6 T. As the oxygen content is reduced, js decreases, whereas Q increases. Both properties are influenced by the decreased dpoing level as well as the enhanced anisotropy of oxygen depleted YBa2Cu3Ox. Using the Generalixed Inversion Scheme derived by Schnak et al. we obtain the current dependence of the activation energy U(f). We show that U(j) is lowered when the oxygen content is reduced.

Title Softening of the flux line lattice in Ge/Pb multilayers Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Superconductor Science and Technology Abbreviated Journal
Volume 5 Issue 1S Pages
Keywords
Abstract The authors measured the critical current density Jc of artificially grown Ge/Pb multilayers as a function of the magnetic field H perpendicular to applied perpendicular to the layers. In these layered structures Jc(Hperpendicular to) rapidly drops to a pronounced minimum at a field H*perpendicular to, then increases through a broad maximum and finally decays to zero at H c2 perpendicular to. The systematic evolution of this minimum as a function of temperature, layer thickness and pinning strength allows us to conclude that this peculiar behavior is due to a thermally driven softening of the flux line lattice which can be related either to a magnetic decoupling or a melting of the vortex structure.

Title Thermally induced transition in the vortex lattice of Ge/Pb multilayers Type Journal Article

Volume 185-189 Issue PART 3 Pages 2061-2062
Keywords Germanium And Alloys; Lead And Alloys; Superconducting Films; Thermal Effects; Critical Currents; Multilayers; Metallic Films
Abstract We report on a novel magnetic field dependence of the critical current density of M.B.E. grown Ge/Pb insulator/superconductor multilayers. When the magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the layers, the critical current density Jc drops to a minimum, followed by a broad maximum before finally decaying monotonously to zezero with increasing magnetic field. The dependence of this effect on pinning strength, temperature, and layer thickness suggests either a thermally driven coupling/decoupling transition, or melting of the vortex lattice.

Volume 67 Issue 18 Pages 2577-2580
Keywords
Abstract We report a novel magnetic-field dependence of the critical-current density Jc in artificially grown Ge/Pb superlattices. In these layered structures Jc exhibits an unexpected minimum as a function of perpendicular applied field, unlike any ever observed in other superconductor systems. The systematic evolution of this minimum as a function of layer thicknesses, temperature and pinning strength is related to either flux-lattice decoupling or melting.

Title Photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Applied Physics Letters Abbreviated Journal Appl. Phys. Lett.
Volume 60 Issue 17 Pages 2159-2161
Keywords
Abstract We show clear and conclusive experimental evidence for the enhancement of superconductivity in GdBa2Cu3Ox and YBa 2Cu3Ox thin films by photoexcitation. Upon laser illumination the critical temperature increases while the resistivity of the material decreases. The relaxation back to the original state is very slow, of the order of days at room temperature. The existence of this effect opens the possibility of fabricating weak-link devices with in situ tunable superconducting characteristics.

Title Photoinduced changes in the transport properties of oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Physical Review B Abbreviated Journal
Volume 46 Issue 21 Pages 14249-14252
Keywords
Abstract We show that illumination of oxygen-deficient metallic YBa2Cu3Ox films produces a change in the Hall coefficient, an increase in the critical temperature, and a decrease in the electrical resistivity. These changes relax to equilibrium with characteristic times of the order of days, and are due to variations in both the carrier density and mobility. The relaxation times are of the same order of magnitude as the ones measured in nonilluminated oxygen-deficient films immediately after quenching.
