Abstract

REBa2Cu3Oy (REBCO) film is required for high-critical current (Ic) at 77 K, when using in power applications such as superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) and nuclear fusion. Generally, critical current density (Ic) of REBCO thick film decreases with increasing thickness of superconductor, because the amount of dead layer such as a-axis oriented phase increases with increasing the thickness. We speculated that the formation of α-axis oriented phase in REBCO thick films is owing to reduction of surface temperature. In this study, we fabricated low temperature growth (LTG)-multi Sm1.04Ba 1.96Cu3Oy, (SmBCO) thick films using a (Sm 1.04Ba1.96Cu3Oy/Sm-rich layer) × N (N= 1, 2⋯) multilayer system, to suppress the formation of α-axis oriented phases. The LTG-multi thick films retained a large terrace, as a result, supressing the reduction of surface temperature, even if the thickness of the films becomes thick. Therefore, LTG-multi thick films suppressed the formation of a-axis oriented phases and the films showed I c = 630 A/cm-width with a thickness of 1.35 μm at 77 K, From these results, we suggest that LTG-multilayer system is an effective technique for improving the critical current of coated conductor.
