Abstract

(Nd,Eu,Gd)Ba2Cu3Oy (NEG) films were prepared on LaAlO3 single-crystal substrates by metal-organic deposition (MOD) using fluorine-free solutions of metal 2-ethylhexanates (2-EH) or metal naphthenates (MN) with a small amount of trifluoroacetic acids (TFA) added. The addition of TFA to fluorine-free solutions lowered the growth temperatures, promoted crystal growth, and improved the superconducting properties of NEG films. This was similar to the effects observed on the growth of superconducting films by TFA-MOD using metal-trifluoroacetates. We report the successful growth of NEG films with Tc of 92.6 K and Jc of 0.36 MA/cm2 without introduction of water vapor.
