Observations on the Growth of YBa2Cu307-δ Thin Films by Transmission Electron Microscopy

  • M. Grant Norton
  • C. Barry Carter

Abstract

A major research effort in high-temperature oxide superconductors is the growth of high-quality thin films. The physical properties of polycrystalline thin films are controlled by their microstructure which is influenced by the early stages of film growth and the establishment of epitaxy. In this article, the nucleation and heteroepitactic growth of YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin films is reviewed. In particular, the role of transmission electron microscopy in these studies is highlighted.
