Highly stable, pure, and anhydrous organometallic YBa2Cu3O7-δ (YBCO) precursor solutions were prepared by dissolving commercial YBCO powder in acetone by trifluoroacetic anhydride (TFAA) or a mixture of TFAA with propionic acid for low fluorine precursors. It is shown that compared to conventional oil bath heating reported in literature, the reaction to produce YBCO precursor occurs 72 times faster by microwave heating. More importantly, the formation of byproducts is suppressed, as shown by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS). This approach allows a highly reproducible preparation of superconducting coatings which is of interest for low-cost manufacturing processes capable of large-scale production of the coated conductors via chemical solution deposition (CSD). This technology requires reliable and stable precursor solutions for continuous deposition. In this work, we obtained YBCO thin films on single-crystal substrates ((100)-LaAlO3) with a high critical current density (Jc) of 3-4 MA/cm2 in self-field at 77 K using TFA-based YBCO precursors and Jc of 5-6 MA/cm2 using low fluorine YBCO precursors. © 2017 American Ceramic Society.

In this paper, we present ink-jet printing as an attractive alternative to lithography and etching methods for the development of multi-filamentary YBa2Cu3O7-δ coated conductors. Our research is mainly focused on the study of the influence of rheological parameters on the printability of water-based inks in order to produce superconducting patterns on SrTiO3 and CeO2-La 2Zr2O7-Ni5at%W substrates. An aqueous YBCO precursor ink with a total metal ion concentration of 1.1 mol/L with a viscosity of 6.79 mPa s and a surface tension of 67.9 mN/m is developed. Its printing behavior using several ink-jet printing devices is verified using a camera with strobed illumination to quantify droplet velocity and volume. After optimization of the deposition parameters, YBCO tracks with different dimensions could be printed on both types of substrates. Their shape and dimensions were determined using optical microscopy and non-contact profilometry, showing 100-200 nm thick and 40-200 μm wide tracks. Finally, resistivity measurements were performed on the widest tracks on SrTiO3 showing a clear drop in the resistivity starting from 88.6 K with a ΔTc of 1.4 K. © 2013 Materials Research Society.

Superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-δ (YBCO) films with artificial BaZrO3 (BZO) nanodots were prepared using a chemical solution deposition method involving hybrid solutions composed of trifluoroacetate-based YBCO precursors and reverse micelle stabilized BZO nanoparticle dispersions. Microemulsion-mediated synthesis was used to obtain nano-sized (∼12 nm) and mono-dispersed BZO nanoparticles that preserve their features once introduced into the YBCO solution, as revealed by dynamic light scattering. Phase pure, epitaxial YBCO films with randomly oriented BZO nanodots distributed over their whole microstructure were grown from the hybrid solutions on (100) LaAlO3 substrates. The morphology of the YBCO-BZO nanocomposite films was strongly influenced by the amount of nanoparticles incorporated into the system, with contents ranging from 5 to 40 mol%. Scanning electron microscopy showed a high density of isolated second-phase defects consisting of BZO nanodots in the nanocomposite film with 10 mol% of BZO. Furthermore, a direct observation and quantitative analysis of lattice defects in the form of interfacial edge dislocations directly induced by the BZO nanodots was evidenced by transmission electron microscopy. The superconducting properties (77 K) of the YBCO films improved considerably by the presence of such nanodots, which seem to enhance the morphology of the sample and therefore the intergranular critical properties. The incorporation of preformed second-phase defects (here, BZO) during the growth of the superconducting phase is the main innovation of this novel approach for the all-solution based low-cost fabrication of long-length coated conductors.

Based on simultaneous in situ high energy synchrotron micro-tomography and x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements we compare the microstructural changes and the formation of second phases and texture during the processing of Bi-2212 round wires with 15 μm filament diameter (multifilament) and 650 μm filament diameter (monofilament) fabricated using identical Bi-2212 precursor. The monofilament tomograms show in unprecedented detail how the distributed porosity agglomerates well before Bi-2212 melting decomposition to form lenticular voids that completely interrupt the filament connectivity along the wire axis. When the Bi-2212 phase completely melts connectivity in the axial wire direction is established via the changes in the void morphology from the lenticular voids to bubbles that remain when Bi-2212 crystallises out of the melt. By measuring the attenuation of the monochromatic x-ray beam, the associated Bi-2212 mass density changes have been monitored during the entire heat cycle. The XRD results reveal that the wire architecture can have a strong influence on the phase evolution during the melt processing heat treatment affecting the reversibility of Bi-2212 melting decomposition reaction. A strong Bi-2212 texturing is only achieved in the multifilament wire, while in the monofilament wire Bi-2212 crystallites grow with nearly random orientation. © 2016 IOP Publishing Ltd.

High current coated conductors (CCs) have high potential for developing electrical power applications and very high field magnets. The key issues for market success are low cost robust processes, high performance and a reliable manufacturing methodology of long length conductors. In recent years EU researchers and companies have made substantial progress towards these goals, based on vacuum (PLD) and chemical deposition (CSD) methods, towards nanostructuring of films. This provides a unique opportunity for Europe to integrate these advances in high performance conductors. The EUROTAPES project will address two broad objectives: 1/ the integration of the latest developments into simple conductor architectures for low and medium cost applications and to deliver \500m tapes. Defining of quality control tools and protocols to enhance the processing throughput and yield to achieve a pre-commercial cost target of 100 /kAm. 2/ Use of advanced methodologies to enhance performance (larger thickness and Ic, enhanced pinning for high fields, reduction of ac losses, increased mechanical strength). Demonstration of high critical currents (Ic>400A/cm-w, at 77K and self-field and Ic>1000A/cm-w at 5K and 15T) and pinning forces (Fp>100GN/m3 at 60 K). The CSD and PLD technologies will be combined to achieve optimized tape architectures, nanostructures and processes to address a variety of HTS applications at self-field, high and ultrahigh magnetic fields. Up to month 36, 3 types of conductors will be developed (RABiT, ABAD and round wire); at Mid Term 2 will be chosen for demonstration during the final 18 months. The consortium consists of 20 partners from 8 member states 6 universities (Cambridge, UK; Antwerp, B, U.A. Barcelona, ES, TU Cluj, RO, U. Ghent, BE and TU Wien, A), 5 institutes (CSIC-ICMAB, E, ENEA, I, IEE, SK, Inst. Neel-CNRS, F, and IFW, D), 1 technological center (LEITAT, ES) and 8 industrial companies (Bruker, D, Evico, D, Theva, D, Nexans GmbH, D, Percotech, D, Nexans SA, F, Lafarga Lacambra, ES and Oxolutia, ES).

This paper reports the successful application of ink-jet printing to the deposition of both continuous coatings and multi-filamentary structures of YBCO. Stable inks have been prepared using both the established TFA-MOD route and novel fluorine-free precursors with appropriate rheological properties for ink-jet printing. Continuous and well textured coatings with lengths exceeding 100m and a thickness of 0.5μm have been deposited by electromagnetic ink-jet printing from TFA precursors on LZO-buffered NiW substrates and samples have achieved a J c around 1.5MAcm -2 (self-field, 77K). On single crystal substrates, continuous coatings and multi-filamentary structures have been deposited using piezoelectric ink-jet printing both from TFA-and water-based precursors, achieving J c values up to 3MAcm -2. © 2012 IOP Publishing Ltd.

The main research objective is the formulation of new types of multimetaloxide nanocrystals for incorporation as artificial pinning centers in nanocomposite thin films processed using chemical solution deposition. Superconducting coated conductors are chosen as the proof of concept. Innovative chemical deposition methods and the incorporation of preformed and inert multimetaloxide nanocrystals as pinning centres into the superconducting nanocomposite thin film are the innovative aspects compared to ongoing research. A successful realisation of the objectives of this EID proposal will need training of ESRs on different aspects ranging from chemical precursor design, stabilisation of nanocrystals in precursor solutions, continuous deposition of superconducting nanocomposite coatings and optimisation of the superconducting properties in alternating magnetic fields. The main objective of this programme is, in line with the EID scope, to enhance the career perspectives of early stage researchers (ESRs) by providing the unique opportunity to be exposed to research and training in both an academic as well as an industrial environment. This will be facilitated through the partnership between Ghent University and the industrial partner Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH, bringing together two widely respected research partners, active in the field of inorganic nanomaterials synthesis and coating development for improved superconducting wires for energy applications. The involved partner organisations entered the project for specific added value in terms of industrial scaled synthesis of nanocomposite precursors (hte GmbH: high troughput designs; BASF SE: new formulations and flow chemistry) and Univ. of Turku (physical characterisation).

Considerable progress has been made with the development of REBCO coated conductors in recent years, and high performance conductors are available commercially. For many applications, however, the cost remains prohibitive, and AC losses discourage their selection for higher frequency applications. Chemical solution deposition (CSD) methods are attractive for low-cost, scalable preparation of buffer and superconductor layers, and in many respects inkjet printing is the method of choice, permitting non-contact deposition with minimal materials wastage and excellent control of coating thickness. Highly textured coatings of YBCO and Gd-doped CeO2 have previously been reported on buffered metal substrates. Inkjet printing also introduces the possibility of patterning - directly depositing two and three dimensional structures without subtractive processing - offering a low-cost route to coated conductors with reduced AC losses. In this contribution, the inkjet deposition of superconducting YBCO tracks is reported on industrially relevant buffered metal substrates both by direct printing and an inverse patterning approach. In the latter approach, ceria tracks were printed reported, which are a candidate both for resistive filament spacers and buffer layers. TFA-based precursor solutions have been printed on SS/ABAD-YSZ/CeO2 and Ni-W/LZO/CeO2 RABiTS substrates, and the resulting multifilamentary samples characterised by microscopy and scanning Hall probe measurements. The prospects for future inkjet-printed low AC loss coated conductors are discussed, including control of interfilamentary resistivity and bridging, transposed filamentary structures and stabilisation material.
