Paper Abstract

Critical current density above 10,000 A/sq cm at 77 K and zero magnetic field have been achieved for both YBa2Cu3O6.8(YBCO) thin films on metallic substrates. A transition buffer, consisting of sub-buffers deposited at different temperatures, was used to enhance the crystallinity and the transport properties of YBCO films on metallic substrates. YBCO films were fabricated, using in situ laser deposition, and they were strongly c-axis oriented. Critical temperature of 87 K and critical current density of 30,000 A/sq cm at 77 K were obtained for a 0.5 micron-thick YBCO film. This Jc value is the highest reported for YBCO films on metallic substrates. Also, the magnetic field dependence of Jc and the mechanical properties could be improved by using Pt-coated metallic substrates.
