Paper Abstract

Electron tunneling for YBa2Cu3O7-x(YBCO) thin film prepared by activated reactive evapo-ration technique has been studied using normal conductor-insulator-superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions and using superconductor-insulator-superconductor(SIS) tunnel junctions. Based on data of NIS using single crystal thin film of YBC0(001), reproducible gap parameter ▵⊥(4.6K) of 9.0 ± 1.8meV and a coupling constant of 2.4 ± 0.5 < 2▵⊥(0)/kTc < 3.5 ±0.7 in perpendicular direction to the Cu-0 planes were obtained. The quasi-particle density of states exhibits a lifetime broadening picture. The recombination lifetime t r of quasiparticle decreases as the temperature approaching to the transition point from low temperatures. 77, at 60K is estimated to be 10-13 s. Multipeaks which are often observed in differential tunnel conductance spectra of (110) or (103) oriented thin film of YBCO are understood as not to be an intrinsic property of YBCO.
