Title: c-Axis oriented orthorhombic YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7[minus][delta]] on silver from organic solvent solutions of metal iodides

Abstract

It has been known for some time that highly oriented or single crystals of YBa[sub 2]Cu[sub 3]O[sub 7[minus][delta]] (YBCO) formed on substrates such as single-crystal strontium titanate generally show a much higher critical current density (J[sub c]) than bulk samples. Usually these thin films of YBCO are produced by high-energy vapor processes such as sputtering, laser ablation, and molecular beam epitaxy. Hamdi et al. have reported growth of YBCO on SrTiO[sub 3] single crystals from solutions of yttrium, barium, and copper neodecanoates. Single-crystal ionic substrates preclude any formation of long lengths of YBCO on flexible substrates. This thin-film study was undertaken to find thin-film processes which might yield YBCO in ribbon or wire configurations. Silver would appear to be a good choice for such a substrate. Greuter et al. reported orienting YBCO powder on silver foil by coating a suspension of oxides centrifugally (or by dip coating) to yield microcrystalline c-axis oriented textured material. A film of a thickness of the order of 1 [mu]m was achieved after firing at 930[degrees]C. Thus, an investigation of the c-axis orientation of YBCO from the solution processing of iodide precursors on silver began. 17 ref., 4 figs.
