Abstract

We have prepared in situ REBa2Cu3O7 (REBCO) (RE= Y, Pr, Dy) thin films and YBC0/Dy(Pr)BC0 superlattices by single target dc planar magnetron sputtering. YBCO/DyBCO superlattices have been realized with modulation wavelength as short as 24Å, i.e., a unit cell of YBCO alternates with a unit cell of DyBCO, on average. The superconducting properties of such superlattices are indistinguishable from those of single layers. Tco's (zero resistance) are between 85 and 89K, and the residual resistivity ratios are between 2.5 and 3. In contrast to these results, when YBCO is layered with PrBCO, which is insulating, a dramatic change in the superconducting properties is observed. We have been able to artificially vary the coupling between single 12Å unit cell of YBCO by interposing insulating planes of PrBCO. As the YBCO layer separation increases, T is reduced and the transition broadens showing evidence of 2‐D superconducting fluctuations.
