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 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
Keywords Doping (additives); Electric conductivity; Hall effect; Mathematical models; Thermal effects; Thin films; Transport properties; Yttrium compounds; Carrier density; Hall angle slope; Oxygen content; Zero temperature intercept; Superconducting films
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 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 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 YBa2Cu3Ox: A natural multilayer system with tunable anisotropy Type Journal Article
Year 1993 Publication Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Abbreviated Journal
Volume 5 Issue 33 A Pages
Keywords
Abstract The authors report on magnetoresistivity rho ab( theta ,H,T) measurements below Tc in YBa2Cu3Oxn films with differing oxygen content x. The observed variations in the angular and field dependence of rho ab with reduced x indicate a gradual dimensional crossover from an anisotropic 3D to a quasi-2D behaviour. The increasing anisotropy is related to a decrease of the coupling between the Cu2O2 bilayers when oxygen is removed from the Cu1Ox chain-planes.

Title 3D-2D dimensional crossover in YBa2Cu3O7 films Type Journal Article
Year 1993 Publication Physical Review Letters Abbreviated Journal
Volume 71 Issue 19 Pages 3210-3213
Keywords
Abstract We show that, in fully oxidized YBa2Cu3O7 c-axis oriented films, the changes induced in the angular and field dependence of the magnetoresistivity ?ab by increasing the temperature towards Tc are similar to those caused by a lowering in oxygen content. This remarkable behavior can be interpreted as due to a crossover from a three-dimensional to a two-dimensional system as T approaches Tc. Moreover, our critical current data mimic the behavior observed by Qi Li et al. in YBa2Cu3O7/(PrxY1-x)Ba2Cu3O7 multilayers, suggesting the possibility that chain planes are superconducting.

Title Photoexcitation effects in YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article

Keywords Barium compounds; Ceramic materials; Copper oxides; High temperature superconductors; Oxides; Photoelectricity; Yttrium compounds; C-axis oriented films; Photoexcitation effects; Photoinduced phenomena; Yttrium barium cuprates; Superconducting films
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.

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 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.

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.
