    Superconducting thin films of YBaCuO were prepared by stacking layers of CuOx , Y2O3, and BaF2 onto substrates held at room temperature. The CuOx layer was obtained by oxidizing in air a previously deposited metallic Cu film. After deposition of the subsequent layers, the films were annealed at...

    The influence of nonsuperconducting defects on the power density for microwave breakdown of a high-T[sub c] superconducting film is investigated theoretically. It is found that the scenario of the destruction of superconductivity depends substantially on the shape of the defect and on the ratio...

    We have studied the effect of visible and near-infrared light on the electrical properties of superconducting thin films of YBa2Cu3O7-δ. The responses we observe can all be explained in terms of light heating the film to a temperature above the superconducting transition. No evidence that the...

    The electrical response to infrared radiation of polycrystalline Ba1-xKxBiO3 thin films on MgO(100) and sapphire substrates with Tc’s of approximately 20 K is studied using modulated laser light at a wavelength of 1.3 μm. These films clearly show nonbolometric responses which are quite...
