    • Abstract:
      Thin superconducting films of YBa2 Cu3 O7 have been prepared by magnetron sputtering from targets of sintered material in an oxygen-argon atmosphere. The compositional and structural properties were studied by Rutherford backscattering and x-ray diffraction. The films were deposited at substrate temperatures between 580 and 800 °C. It was found that the material grows in the oxygen deficient tetragonal phase. In situ heat treatment at 430 °C in pure O2 atmosphere generates the orthorhombic structure and the films on sapphire and SrTiO3 coated sapphire substrates show the full superconducting transition at 83 K.
