Weak links and dc SQUIDS on artificial nonsymmetric grain boundaries in YBa2Cu3O7-δ
Ivanov, Z.G., Nilsson, P.Å, Winkler, D., Alarco, J.A., Claeson, T., Stepantsov, E.A., & Tzalenchuk, A.Ya (1991) Weak links and dc SQUIDS on artificial nonsymmetric grain boundaries in YBa2Cu3O7-δ. Applied Physics Letters, 59(23), pp. 3030-3032.
We have studied weak links and dc-SQUIDs made from pulsed laser deposited YBa2Cu3O7-δ thin films on Y-ZrO 2 bicrystal substrates. The transport properties of the weak links were studied as a function of the misorientation angle (θ) between the two halves of the bicrystal and an exponential dependence of the weak link critical current density was observed for angles up to 40°at 77 K. Josephson effects with clear microwave and magnetic field responses were observed. An optimum dc-SQUID performance at 77 K was obtained for θ=32°. At this temperature, we achieved a periodic magnetic field response with a modulation depth of 12 μV.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
