Expectations are high for using coated conductors for electric power applications not only because of better cost performance but also higher J c-B properties compared with Bi2Sr2Ca 2Cu3O10 (BSCCO) tapes. Furthermore, the coated conductors could also reduce AC losses by the use of various methods in post-treatment. When a YAG laser was used for scribing the superconductive layer, an AC loss reduction due to a decrease in the width of the superconductivity layer could be confirmed in short samples. In the case of AC applications using long tapes, high resistance between scribed filaments is necessary. However, the resistance between the filaments scribed by a laser was as low as 10-3Ωcm-1. The reason for the low resistance was the existence of dross in the filament spacings, which was confirmed by a cross-sectional compositional mapping observation. Although the superconductivity layer was divided by the laser, the dross of the metal substrate made a bridge over the superconductivity filaments. Post-annealing in an O2 atmosphere to oxidize the dross was carried out in order to increase the resistance. Consequently, the resistance between the filaments was improved to be as high as 50Ωcm-1. We succeeded in controlling the resistance value between filaments in a range five orders of magnitude higher than that of the as-scribed YBCO film, through oxygen atmosphere post-annealing.
