Abstract
The widespread use of vacuum techniques for the development of coated conductors, in which buffer and superconducting (REBa2Cu3O7-delta) layers are deposited epitaxially on a substrate, is well established in the research environment. However, obtaining uninterrupted deposition at high speed, increasing flexibility in composition and in film thickness and attaining independence of geometric constraints are areas in which many vacuum techniques will need sustained development in order to answer industrial demands. This work describes the deposition of textured CeO2 buffer layers based on sol gel dip coating under atmospheric environment and from aqueous precursor materials. Research has been performed towards the deposition of CeO2-buffer layers using the amorphous citrate method on sapphire substrates and Ni-W foils. Coating is performed using the dip-coating technique, which allows extension to a continuous system. The withdrawal speed and the thermal treatment have been optimised in order to obtain highly oriented (001) layers exhibiting a smooth and crack-free morphology both on ceramic and metallic substrates, From the results it was concluded that sintering atmosphere and sintering temperature play a crucial role in the growth mechanism. This study describes the structural and morphological analysis of the thin layer with special attention to the difference between ceramic and metallic substrates.
