  4. Superconductivity Technology Center Los Alamos The Jc reduction above ~ 1.5 mm appears related to an increase in surface roughness with YBCO thickness ... 0.39 mm 1.5 mm 3.0 mm Jc = 0.6 MA/cm2 calc. Ic = 180 A/cm Jc = 2.3 MA/cm2 calc. Ic = 90 A/cm Jc = 1.5 MA/cm2 calc. Ic = 225 A/cm

  5. Rate of increase: 60 A/cm-width for each additional micron of superconductor thickness Superconductivity Technology Center Los Alamos Ion milling shows that a multilayer structure allows Ic to continue to increase at thickness levels above 1.5 mm 75 K -- Bridge dimensions: ~150 mm x 5 mm

  6. Silver contact YBCO Sm1Ba2Cu3O7-d CeO2 IBAD YSZ Inconel Superconductivity Technology Center Los Alamos Y123-Sm123 Multilayers Enabled Thicker Films with Higher Critical Currents Y- Sm-Y- Sm-Y multilayer YBCO thickness: ~1.1 mm SBCO thickness: ~ 0.2 mm Total thickness: 3.7 mm Jc: 1.1 MA/cm2 (75 K) Calculated Ic: 405 A/cm-width For comparison, Jc of a 3.7 mm YBCO single-layer: 0.4 MA/cm2 Bridge dimensions: ~ 200 mm x 5 mm

  7. 75 K -- bridges ~200 mm x 5 mm Superconductivity Technology Center Los Alamos Modified superconductor processes push the Ic well beyond the 200 A/cm-width “barrier” to over 500 A/cm Substrate: Inconel 625 with IBAD YSZ

  8. Los Alamos Superconductivity Technology Center IBAD MgO template forms at ~ 10 nm thickness - approximately 100 times thinner/faster than for IBAD YSZ Ic (75K) = 42 A IBAD texture evolution vs. thickness YBCO Y2O3 YSZ DF (deg.) Epi MgO IBAD MgO Si3N4 0.1 µm Inconel 625 Thickness (nm)
