Paper Abstract

The results of the study of electrostimulated diffusion in polycrystalline and epitaxial YBCO (123) and ceramic Bi (2223) HTCS films give evidence of the motion of heavy ions and oxygen under the transport superconducting current flow. Long-duration dc flowing in films in the superconducting state at 4.2 and 77 K leads to new morphological forms with modified chemical composition and formation of nonsuperconducting phases. The effect in the high- quality epitaxial films exits, but it is weaker. Long-duration flowing of high-power 36 GHz current leads to formation of periodic strip structures enriched with copper and oxygen. The experiments with thick (25 micrometers ) Bi (2223) films reveal modified stoichiometry practically over the entire film. At 300 K the YBCO (123) system is shown to have the ionic conduction component. Possible mechanisms of the observed experimental effects are discussed.
