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 Dynamic softening of vortex lines in YBa2Cu3O7-? single crystals Type Journal Article
Year 1996 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 260 Issue 3-4 Pages 211-216
Keywords Crystal defects; Magnetic anisotropy; Magnetic couplings; Mathematical models; Single crystals; Transport properties; Vortex flow; Yttrium compounds; Dynamic softening; Flux transformer configuration; Pinning potential; Transport measurements; Vortex correlation; Vortex line; Yttrium barium cuprates; High temperature superconductors
Abstract Transport measurements in the mixed state of oxygen-deficient YBa2Cu3O7-? single crystals using the flux transformer configuration show that the flux liquid changes with increasing anisotropy from strongly correlated to uncorrelated in the field direction. For intermediate coupling, the current inducing loss of vortex correlation has a maximum near the irreversibility temperature. Thus, an effective softening of vortex lines with decreasing temperature is detected. We propose a simple model that accounts for this behavior by including the effects of the pinning potential on the dynamics of vortices.

Title Photoinduced superconductivity and structural changes in high temperature superconducting films Type Journal Article
Year 1994 Publication Applied Physics Letters Abbreviated Journal
Volume 64 Issue 5 Pages 652-654
Keywords Annealing; Electric conductivity measurement; Lighting; Oxygen; Praseodymium compounds; Quenching; Semiconducting films; Structure (composition); Superconductivity; Thermal effects; Thin films; Yttrium compounds; Contraction; Oxygen vacancy; Photoinduced superconductivity; Stoichiometry; Superconducting critical temperature; High temperature superconductors
Abstract The illumination of PryGd1-yBa2Cu 3Ox semiconducting and superconducting thin films increases their critical temperatures and decreases their normal state resistivities if and only if the films are oxygen deficient. Moreover, these changes are enhanced near the Pr-induced metal-insulator transition. Light also causes a contraction of the c-axis in YBa2Cu3Ox which is correlated with the observed photoinduced resistivity changes. These changes are similar to those observed when oxygen-deficient YBa 2Cu3Ox is enriched with oxygen or annealed at room temperature after quenching from high temperatures.

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 Frequency and amplitude response of the flux-line lattice to mechanical perturbation in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7 Type Journal Article
Year 1992 Publication Physica C: Superconductivity and its applications Abbreviated Journal Phys C Supercond Appl
Volume 201 Issue 3-4 Pages 257-262
Keywords Copper oxides; Crystal lattices; Frequency response; Internal friction; Lattice vibrations; Magnetic fields; Mathematical models; Mechanical properties; Pendulums; Rheology; Thermal effects; Torque; Yttrium compounds; Amplitude response; Ceramic yttrium barium copper oxides; Extended dry friction model; Flux line lattices; Forced pendulum; Frequency independent dissipation peak; Mechanical response; Thermal activation; High temperature superconductors
Abstract The mechanical response of the flux-line lattice has been measured with a low-frequency forced pendulum in ceramic YBa2Cu3O7. A dissipation peak observed in temperature sweeps is frequency-independent between 1 mHz and 5 Hz. Dissipation depends strongly on applied torque, and for fixed temperatures this dependence is well fitted by a rheological model of extended dry friction. If the model is extended to take account of thermal activation, however, it does not agree with the measured frequency independence, which is hard to explain within simple models of thermal activation.

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 Low temperature internal friction peak in high Tc superconductors Type Journal Article

Keywords Ceramic Materials; Oxides – Acoustic Properties; Yttrium Compounds – Acoustic Properties; Acoustic Variables Measurement; Attenuation Peak; Calcium Compounds; Low Temperature Internal Friction Peak; Strontium Compounds; Thermally Activated Relaxation Behavior; High Temperature Superconductors
Abstract We measure the internal friction Q-1 in YBa2Cu3O7-x and Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x samples. At temperatures near 35 K for KHz frequencies we observe an attenuation peak. In the case of YBa2Cu3O7-x, assuming a thermally activated relaxation behaviour, we are able to show that it corresponds to the same process as other peaks observed at higher frequencies. For Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x this is not the case, and the origin of the peak, found in all the measured samples, remains unknown.

Title Irreversibility line and critical currents in oxygen deficient YBa2Cu3Ox ceramics Type Journal Article

Volume 183 Issue 1-3 Pages 163-166

Abstract The influence of oxygen concentration on the irreversibility line and critical current of polycrystalline YBa2Cu3Ox was determined using field and zero-field cooled magnetic measurements and magnetic hysteresis data. Although the field dependence of Tirr(H) is unchanged, the irreversibility line shifts to lower temperatures for decreasing oxygen content and the critical current density is strongly reduced.

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.

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.
