Title Growth of particle-free YBa2Cu3O7 films by off-axis sputtering Type Journal Article
Year (up) 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 Photoinduced enhancement of superconductivity Type Journal Article
Year (up) 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 Controlled preparation of oxygen deficient YBa2Cu 3Ox films Type Journal Article
Year (up) 1992 Publication Applied Physics Letters Abbreviated Journal
Volume 60 Issue 13 Pages 1627-1629
Keywords
Abstract We describe a simple method based on the oxygen pressure-temperature phase diagram to prepare oxygen deficient YBa2Cu3Ox thin films. Systematic critical temperature and x-ray diffraction experiments clearly show that films with different oxygen contents (6.6?x?7) are obtained in a controlled, reproducible, and reversible way.

Title Photoinduced changes in the transport properties of oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article
Year (up) 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.

Title The magnetic moment relaxation in oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3Ox Type Journal Article
Year (up) 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 Influence of the oxygen content on the normal-state Hall angle in YBa2Cu3Oxn films Type Journal Article
Year (up) 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 (up) 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 (up) 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.

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.
