Time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy is described for high Tc YBa2Cu3O7-x under 8 ps/530 nm laser ablation. The emission spectrum covered most of the visible spectrum and showed emission lines from ions. The emission profiles in time consist of fast (≊25 ps) and slow (≊1 ns) decay components.

    Experimental demonstration of reduction in the number and size of particulates formed in the laser ablation deposition of YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin films is obtained by the use of a second laser which further heats and fragments the blowoff material in the plume formed by the first laser. This results...

    We discuss the results of a study on the growth by laser ablation of YBa2Cu3O7 thin films on polycrystalline and annealed vicinal (001) MgO substrates. In both instances the films were found to grow predominantly with the c axis normal to the plane of the substrate, regardless of the orientation...

    Room-temperature laser-induced voltages were observed in unsupported, polycrystalline wafers of YBa2Cu3O7-x in the absence of a transport current. Peak voltages of ∼1 V were detected in response to 40 mJ pulses of 532 nm light. The rise and fall times for the signals were detector limited....
