Paper Abstract

High quality epitaxial YBa2Cu3O7-(delta) films prepared by d.c. magnetron sputtering are single crystalline containing mosaic blocks, the boundaries of which consist of arrays of dislocations piling up into walls. Low temperature oxygenation in the orthorhombic phase is carried out by pipe diffusion in the basal planes. An equation has been derived from the dislocation model of low angle tilting grain boundary which predicts a linear relationship between the oxygen increase 1-(delta) and t3/4, where t is the diffusion time. Two straight lines were established for oxygen anneal respectively at 300 degree(s)C and 350 degree(s)C and these verified the proposed model explicitly. From slops of these two straight lines, an activation energy of 1.18 eV for lattice diffusion of oxygen is obtained.
