Weak-link devices were fabricated from polycrystalline thin films of YBaCuO and BiSrCaCuO. Two distinct types of weak links have been found in these devices. The first type, found in all of the YBaCuO and most of the BiSrCaCuO devices, has relatively low dynamic resistances and critical currents with nearly linear temperature dependences. The second type of weak links, found in some BiSrCaCuO films, has much larger dynamic resistances and critical current temperature dependences similar to that of a tunnel junction. Superconductivity quantum interference devices (SQUID’s) fabricated from BiSrCaCuO showed a periodic response to applied fields that is consistent with the magnitude of the flux enclosed by the SQUID loop. Significant hysteresis was found in the SQUID response, apparently indicating flux penetration into the films at relatively low fields.

    A cosputtering method was used to deposit BiFeO3 thin films on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates. It was confirmed as a polycrystalline film with a tetragonal crystal structure in the annealed state. Both Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions were found to coexist in the film. The leakage current density is as low as 10-3...

    Abstract. Voltage shills of hysteresis loops of metalorganic decomposition (MOD)-derived SrBi[sub 2]Ta[sub 2]O[sub 9] (SBT) thin films, known as imprint, have been observed after exposing the thin-film capacitors to unipolar pulses. The voltage shift changes with cumulative total time at maximum...

    Epitaxial semiconducting NiYBi thin films were directly prepared on MgO(100) substrates by magnetron sputtering. The intensity ratio of the (200) and (400) diffraction peaks, I(200)/I(400) = 2.93, was close to the theoretical value (3.03). The electronic structure of NiYBi was calculated using...

    It has been generally accepted that YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) films deposited on deformation textured polycrystalline metal tapes result in YBCO grain boundary (GB) networks that essentially replicate the GBs of the underlying substrate. Here we report that for thicker YBCO films produced by a BaF2 ex...
