The effect of heat treatment on microstructure development in Ba2YCu3O7−x films prepared from metal trifluoroacetate precursors is investigated. The growth of textured Ba2YCu3O7−x on BaZrO3 substrates is shown to be strongly influenced by the furnace atmosphere used during calcination. Differential thermal analysis was used to show that conditions that promote c-axis texture are also those which cause partial melting of Ba–Y–Cu–O compositions that are depleted in barium relative to Ba2YCu3O7−x.
Decomposition of metal‐organic precursors to Ba2Ycu3O7‐X films is difficult because of the high reaction temperature required to decompose the BaCO3 intermediate. The recently proposed use of metal trifluoroacetate (TFA) solutions offers an alternative path to barium‐containing superconducting films. The TFA salts decompose to the metal fluorides forming BaF2, eliminating BaCO3 from the system. Ultimate conversion to BYC, however, is shown not only to depend on hydrolysis of the BaF2 at high temperatures, but also hydrolysis of copper trifluoracetate at low temperatures to prevent the volatilization of Cu(TFA)2. These processes result in unique microstructural behavior which can be characterized by electon microscopy and Auger spectroscopy. Effects due to substrate interactions have been eliminated by use of a chemically inert substrate material, BaZrO3.
