Abstract

Superconducting Y-Ba-Cu-O films have been grown on mirror-finished flexible stainless steel substrates. Plasma assisted laser deposition (PLD) technique enabled us to grow these films at a reduced substrate temperature of 550°C. Superconducting properties of these as-deposited films depend largely on the surface condition of the substrate. In-situ oxidation of the substrate, Ar ion milling, and buffer layer growth, prior to Y-Ba-Cu-O deposition, produced films with critical temperatures ranging from 78–83K. Critical currents of 3 × 103–104 A/cm2 at 40K have been obtained. Scanning electron microscopy and Auger spectroscopy have been utilized to study the surface morphology and the interfacial diffusion of the films.
