Substrate-HTcS Thin Film Interaction Studies by (S)TEM
This paper concerns with compatibility aspects between HTCS thin films and their substrates. The influence of substrate-thin film interaction and thin film microstructure on the superconducting properties is discussed. In this respect, data based on (S)TEM observations are presented. It is concluded, that it is of the utmost importance to exactly control the growth and crystallisation process of a superconductor thin film.
