Abstract

Using O and As ions, we have investigated the effects of ion irradiation on the superconducting, electrical and microstructural properties of thin films of Y1Ba2Cu3Ox. Superconducting transitions were found to degrade in polycrystalline films by a decoupling of the superconducting grains while epitaxial films degrade due to bulk damage. Damage in the films was a result of elastic rather than electronic processes. Evidence is presented for 1D normal conductivity in the films.
