As-Deposited Superconducting Y-Ba-Cu-O Thin Films on Si, SiO2, GaAs and Ni/Cu Substrates by High Pressure DC Sputtering Process

  • R. J. Lin

The superconducting Y-Ba-Cu-O thin films on Si, SiO 2 , GaAs and Ni/Cu substrates have been reproducibly prepared by high pressure DC sputtering process without further annealing treatment. The superconductivity of the films is Tc(onset)=95K and Tc(zero)=70K. The targets were Y-Ba-Cu-O compounds made by solid state reaction. The substrate temperature is lower than 450°C. X-ray analysis indicates that the 0.6~2μm films consist of predomintly the orthorhombic superconducting phase of YBa 2 Cu 3 Ox with traces of CuO. The effect of processing parameters on the superconductivity of the films will be discussed.
