High critical current YBa2Cu307.y (referred to as YBCO) coated conductors were fabricated
with a layer sequence of YBCQ/YSZ/CeOJ/Ni. The cube (100) texture in the starting Ni
substrates was obtained by cold rolling followed by recrystallization. A thin CeO2 (Cerium
Oxide) layer with a thickness of 100-200 A was grown epitaxially on the biaxially textured-Ni,
substrates using an e-beam evaporation technique. This was followed by the growth of a thick
(S 0.77 pm) YSZ (Yttria Stabilized Zirconia) layer using either e-beam evaporation or rf
magnetron sputtering. The e-beam CeO2 film had a dense microstructure. The microstructure
of the e-beam YSZ film was porous whereas the sputtered YSZ film was dense. The YBCO
films were grown by pulsed laser deposition on both e-beam and sputtered YSZ layers. A
transport critical current density of- I x 106 A/cm' at 77 K was obtained for - 0.8 Am thick
YBCO films on both YSZ surfaces in zero field. To demonstrate the quality and compatibility
of the e-beam CeO2 layers; YBCO films were also grown on CeO2-buffered YSZ (100) single
crystal substrates using e-beam co-evaporated Y-BaF-Cu precursors followed by a post-
annealing process. A transport critical current density of over 1 x 10'A/cm2 at 77 K was
obtained on a - 0.3 pm thick YBCC film in zero field.
For the development of coated conductors for high temperature (77 K), and high field
applications, biaxially textured YBaZCu307.7 (referred to as YBCO) deposits have emerged as one
of the leading candidates. Three approaches have been used to fabricate biaxially textured YBCO
films. The first approach was to grow biaxially textured Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) buffer
layers on polycrystalline substrates including Ni-alloys such as Haynes 230 and Hastelloy C276
through an ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD) process.'4 A high Je of over 1 x 104 A/cm2 at 75
K and zero field was obtained The second approach was to use the Inclined Substrate
Deposition (ISD) technique where textured YSZ deposits were made using pulsed laser
