Abstract

Thin films of Bi(Pb)-Sr-Ca-Cu-O have been grown epitaxially in c-axis orientation on (100) MgO by pulsed laser deposition from 2223 target. The substrate temperature was 500°C and the oxygen partial pressure during the deposition was ∼2 x 10-3 mbar using the second harmonics of an Nd:YAG pulse laser beam. The main properties of BSCCO thin films obtained by laser ablation followed by a post-deposition oxygen annealing treatment were investigated by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy and four-probe resistivity measurements. The high-temperature annealing treatment was also found to be the important parameter for obtaining superconducting transitions. The effect of annealing treatment on the structure and quality of as-deposited and annealed thin films of BSCCO are reported and discussed, as well of the sintered pellets used as targets.
