Abstract

As a method of the fabrication process of YBa2Cu 3O7-x (YBCO) coated conductors, the metalorganic deposition (MOD) process using metal trifluoroacetates (TFA) has been considered to be a strong candidate as a low cost fabrication process for coated conductors with high Jc. In the case of the MOD process using the TFA salts for the all three elements, it requires several tens hours in the calcination process for each single coated film to minimize the generation of pores in the film. In order to shorten the calcination time, a new combination of starting materials was developed. In this study, the new heating process for these new materials has been investigated. Consequently, the calcination time was shortened to be about 17%. Also, the overall transport Ic of 292 A and the Jc value of 2.0 MA/cm2 were achieved with 1.48 μm in thickness at 77 K in self-field.
