Demonstrates the superiority of photoacoustic spectroscopy for the determination of the thickness of copper oxide (CuO) impurity layer over the surface of Cu[sub 2]O thin films during electrodeposition. Rate of the development of the impurity layer; Proportionality of the photoacoustic spectra to the CuO impurity layer thickness.

    We incorporate the experimentally deduced flux line potential well structure into the flux creep model. Application of this approach to the resistive transition in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 epitaxial films explains the power law voltage-current characteristics and the nonlinear current dependence of the...
