Paper Abstract

We have sthdied the ability of high Te supereonduotors to operate as electrical switches or current limiters . For this purpose, we have usi YBaCuO films, deposit&I on polycrystalline zirconia slabs by various techniques: conventional two-step processes as well as rapid thermal annealing have been consider&1 . The main results are that with a Tc(onset) of 91 K, the variation of the critical current density versus fruency shows that it will be possible to use the films at 50-60 Hz, although we ne&i to improve our low current density films to demonstrate this.
