Paper Abstract

The capability of developing an efficient activated oxygen source in conjunction with molecular beam epitaxy has led to successful thin film synthesis of Y1Ba2Cu3O7-x, high temperature superconductors. The smooth morphology and well ordered surface structures of these in-situ grown films allow to conduct superconducting tunneling experiments directly in a planar junction mode. We review in this paper in-situ film growth, materials and superconducting properties, and quasiparticle tunneling characteristics of Y1Ba2Cu3O7-x/native barrier/Pb junctions.
