Synthesis and microstructural analysis of La2Zr2O7 buffer layers for coated conductors

Veerle Cloet UGent (2010)
abstract
After the discovery of superconductivity, in 1911, a vast amount of superconducting materials has been discovered and produced. Due to its broad range of applications, YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) is one of the most versatile and attractive superconductors. This thesis has focused on the exploration of superconducting cables using YBCO, by making use of the coated conductor design. A coated conductor consists of a flexible, metallic tape (NiW), coated with a minimum of buffer layers (La2Zr2O7 or CeO2) and a superconducting film (YBCO). This research explores the use of La2Zr2O7 buffer layers, deposited by a novel and environmentally friendly method. The performance of these buffer layers was tested in complete coated conductor setup. Microstructural analysis of the layers by transmission electron microscopic analysis enables a more in-depth understanding of the properties and growth model of the layers.
