Paper Abstract

We have investigated the resistive transition of YBCO ultra- thin films (thickness from 5 to 50 nm) grown on MgO(100). The amount of disorder increases as the thickness is reduced, leading to a broad transition that can be described using a 3D weakly-coupled Josephson array. Below a critical thickness, this regime seems to dominate even the fluctuating part of the transition (paraconductive region), when the system undergoes a 3D-0D transition.
