We have prepared screen-printed films of the Y-Ba-Cu-O compound on BeO and Al2O3 ceramic substrates. Transition to full superconductive state was obtained for all the samples. The related parameters (Tonset, Tc, ΔT) and some structural properties are reported.

    A simple method for patterning down to 400 nm gaps between two thin-film electrodes is presented. The edge of the first electrode defines the gap via a photolithographic step using off-normal through-substrate exposure. It is demonstrated that the gap width can be controlled simply by adjusting...
