One meter long tapes based on 50-100 /spl mu/m thick by 1 cm wide nickel alloy substrates have been coated in a continuous process with a textured yttria-stabilized zirconia layer by ion beam-assisted deposition, followed by a 1-2 /spl mu/m thick layer of YBCO by pulsed laser deposition. The best result to date is a tape with a critical current (I/sub c… CONTINUE READING
