Title Correlation between critical current and resistivity in YBa2Cu3O7 Type Journal Article
Year 1991 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 185-189 Issue PART 4 Pages 2447-2448
Keywords Ceramic Materials; Yttrium Compounds--Electric Conductivity; Critical Currents; Oxide Superconductors; Yttrium Barium Copper Oxides; High Temperature Superconductors
Abstract Critical current versus temperature measurements were carried out in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7 samples. The samples were all prepared using the same sintering procedure, but starting from powders obtained by different wet and dry methods. All samples showed a linear Jc vs. T behaviour, typical of Josephson weak-link coupling, with a slope that depends on the preparation method. Using the Ambegaokar-Baratoff relation for Jc, the difference in slopes can be attributed to a change in the characteristic value of the junction resistance. This value turns out to be clearly correlated with the resistivity in the normal state.

Title Etching of screw dislocations in YBa2Cu3O7 films with a scanning tunneling microscope Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Applied Physics Letters Abbreviated Journal
Volume 61 Issue 1 Pages 111-113
Keywords
Abstract We report on the systematic unrolling of screw dislocations with the scanning tunneling microscope at the surfaces of sputtered, c-axis oriented YBa2Cu3O7 films. The etching is dominated by field induced evaporation and not by mechanical milling of the surface. The process also enables the controlled drawing of nanometer scale grooves on the film surface.

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
Year 1991 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
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.

Title Transition in the flux lattice of artificially layered superconductors Type Journal Article
Year 1991 Publication Physical Review Letters Abbreviated Journal
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 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.
