In this study, we investigated the correlation between microstructures and critical current density (Jc) of YBa2Cu3O 7-X (YBCO) films with BaZrO3 (BZO) pinning centers by introducing holding temperature during the crystallization process. Smaller BZO particles and higher in-field Jc were found in the YBCO film with holding temperature than the one without. As a result, films with improved microstructures were successfully fabricated by implementation of additional process, holding temperature, and highly in-field Jc were obtained by introducing smaller BZO particles as artificial pinning centers.
