Measures the interface transport in thin-film YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7-delta]/Ag interfaces having resistivities ranging from 10[sup -8] to 10[sup -3] ohms square centimeter. Recognition of tunneling as the predominant transport mechanism; Observation of zero-bias conductance peaks among the varying interfaces; Analysis of the conduction peaks.
