Title Angular variation of pinning near the irreversibility temperature in single crystal Y Ba2Cu3O7-? with splayed columnar defects Type Journal Article
Year 1998 Publication Physica C Abbreviated Journal Physica C
Volume 304 Issue 1-2 Pages 112-118
Keywords Columnar defects; Critical current density; Flux pinning; Pinning force; Anisotropy; Critical current density (superconductivity); Crystal defects; Single crystals; Columnar defects; Flux pinning; Yttrium barium copper oxides
Abstract We have studied vortex pinning through ac susceptibility measurements in single crystals of YBCO with columnar defects (CDs). The CDs have 0, 10 and 20 splay angle and average direction 108 off the c-axis. By studying the angular variation we can compensate for the anisotropy and effects of twins, etc. Using a simple expression we can obtain the angular spread when the field direction is outside the splay angle. An increase of pinning when the field direction is inside

the angle defined by the CDs can be attributed to vortex entanglement due to the splay and the suppression of the sliding of double kinks.

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.
