    • The Properties of Grain Boundaries in YBa2Cu3O7-d 

      Ransley, James (2004-01)
      Grain boundaries form the basis of an important Josephson junction technology in the cuprates and also limit the superconducting critical currents attainable in practical, polycrystalline materials. An improved ...
    • Superior pinning properties in nano-engineered YBa2Cu3O7-δ 

      Ercolano, Giorgio (2011-10-11)
      Large electrical current transport in the absence of energy losses is the key factor in commercial applications of high temperature superconductors. This thesis demonstrates an easy and inexpensive bottom-up technique ...
    • A thermogravimetric study of oxygen diffusion in YBa2Cu3O7-d 

      Vazquez-Navarro, Maria Dolores (1998-08)
      YBa2Cu3O7-d (YBCO) was one of the first high temperature superconductors discovered, and its superconducting properties are strongly dependent on oxygen stoichiometry. A large amount of work has been done on the variation ...
