Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 64)


The electrical properties and Josephson behaviour of high-Tc polycrystalline thin films are shown to be consistent with the model of a 2D array of intergrain Josephson junctions with an exponentially wide distribution of parameters. In these films the electrical currents flow through the critical subnetwork, with characteristic percolation length L being much larger than the grain size a. Single-Josephson-junction behavior is realized in polyciystalline high-Tc bridges with the dimensions w,l in the limits ξ< < a < w,l < L, and high responsive radiation detectors and Squid’s based on these bridges are demonstrated.
