ABSTRACT
Y-Ba-Cu-O films were deposited on Al-coated Si substrates by the plasma-spray method. The Al buffer layer appears to be effective in yielding crack-free adhesive Y-Ba-Cu-O films. Resistance measurements indicate that the films exhibit a superconducting phase below 90 K. Results of x-ray microanalysis and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirm that the Al buffer forms an Al2O3 layer and prevents precipitation of Cu at the film/substrate interface.
