Low- or high-angle Ar ion-beam etching to create ramp-type Josephson junctions


The dependence of the ramp geometry on highor low-angle ion-beam etching, used to structure ramp-type Josephson junctions based on ReBa2Cu3O7−δ high-Tc superconductors, is investigated by cross-section transmission electron microscopy. The surface quality, interfaces and crystal defects are analysed by high-resolution electron microscopy. Technical… (More)
