Paper Abstract

Superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-x films, 8000 angstroms thick, were deposited on MgO substrates and irradiated by 150-ps pulses from a Nd:YAG laser (wavelength equals 1.064 micrometers ). In addition to the bolometric response, a faster nonbolometric component has been observed. A simulation of the bolometric response involving the solution of 1-D heat flow equation in the film and the substrate and electrical modeling of the film was done to confirm the thermal origin of the shower component of the observed photoresponse.
