    It is demonstrated that polycrystalline thin films of high Tc superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-x can be grown with clean grain boundaries, i.e., without a boundary layer of segregation or different phase. In clean stoichiometric samples, angular misorientations of grains may be the origin of weak link...

    We use pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) technique to grow High TC superconducting YB2C3O7-δ films onto virgin and ion-bombarded YSZ substrates. We have found that 0-degree in-plane orientated high quality thin films can be grown on either substrate when the growth temperature is about 810°C....
