Abstract
Development of computer controlled printing techniques for CeO2, NdBa2Cu3O7-δ (NBCO) and YBa2Cu3O7-δ (YBCO) coated conductors is discussed in detail and presented. This method of continuous deposition of YBCO material allows non-vacuum formation of complex multi-layer superconducting patterns on silver substrates. Sol-ink processes were used to print single droplets of CeO2, NBCO and YBCO on polycrystalline silver substrates. The formation and the stability of the sol-ink with respect to pH and concentration has been studied and discussed herein. Printing and substrate parameters that alter solid-liquid interface properties were also investigated. In order to control the flow properties of the sol media dynamic viscosities were determined. Characterisation by X-Ray Diffraction, Differential Thermal Analysis,Thermal Gravitometry and, Scanning Electron Microscopy was used to examine the sol-ink samples, whilst AC susceptibility was used to assess the superconductivity of the printed samples.
