Paper Abstract

In this paper, we have shown that superconducting electronics can provide a complementary role to microelectronics and optoelectronics. High temperature superconductors can be used in the fabrication of ultra fast three terminal devices as well as for chip-to-chip interconnections. If the next generations of DRAMs require cooling at 77 K, high temperature superconductors offer several advantages over metals as the interconnect material. A new photoeffect reported in this paper can give rise to new devices and can be used to couple microwave and optoelectronic technology. Major challenge is to develop a low temperature processing technology that is compatible to semiconductor industry. Experimental results are presented indicating the potential of rapid isothermal processing assisted metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) method as a technique suitable for manufacturing.
