Substrate Influence in YBaCuO Melt-Texturing Growth

  • N. Pellerin (a1), M. Gervais (a1) and P. Odier (a1)

Melt-texturing of YBaCuO is generally processed on substrates. Due to its high chemical activity, the non-stoichiometric liquid, mainly due to the barium element, generally reacts with the substrate which is therefore subjected to play a role in the crystallization of YBaCuO and in the development of the texture. The particular case of Y2O3, which is a reacting but non-polluting substrate, is treated in details. The comparison of textured YBaCuO in similar conditions but on different substrates: Al2O3, Y2O3 and MgO gives some insight in the texturing process.
