Project: Studies of YBCO-YSZ coatings on different substrates prepared by an alternating RF magnetron/ECR plasma oxidation process.

project duration
31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
The proposed project can be situated in the search for deposition processes for usable high Tc superconducting thin film. In order to deposit good quality YBCO films one has to avoid interacted with the substrate material and a buffer layer such as Yttrium Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) is needed. The present study deals with the deposition and characterization of the YSZ layers.
