Thin-film synthesis of superconductor-on-insulator A15 vanadium silicide
A new method for thin-film synthesis of the superconducting A15 phase of vanadium silicide with critical temperature higher than 13 K is presented, which deduces asuperconducting coherence length of 4 nm, consistent with previously reported bulk values.
V3Si Thin-Film Synthesis by Magnetron Sputtering
V3Si thin-films have been produced on a thermally-oxidized Si wafer by magnetron sputtering from an arc-melted target. The phases, lattice constants and superconducting Tc were determined as
Getter Sputtering for the Preparation of Thin Films of Superconducting Elements and Compounds
A new sputtering technique which eliminates the need for ultrahigh vacuums in preparing thin films of materials sensitive to gaseous impurities is described. This technique uses the gettering action
Formation of vanadium silicides by the interactions of V with bare and oxidized Si wafers
Formation of vanadium silicides by the interactions of vanadium with bare and oxidized Si wafers has been studied by both x‐ray diffraction and He ion backscattering techniques. X‐ray diffraction was
Anomalous electrical resistivity and defects in A-15 compounds
The temperature dependence of the electrical resitivity rho of Nb-Ge, V/sub 3/Si, V/sub 3/Ge, and Nb is reported for a variety of samples produced with differing chemical composition (for Nb-Ge),
Mechanical behavior and stress effects in hard superconductors: A review
The mechanical properties of type II superconducting materials are reviewed as well as the effect of stress on the superconducting properties of these materials. The bcc alloys niobium-titanium and
Resistivities of Thin Film Transition Metal Silicides
Resistivities of the transition metal silicides have been determined. The silicides were formed either by reacting thin metal films with silicon or polysilicon substrates or by sintering cosputtered
The formation of vanadium silicides at thin‐film interfaces
Previous results have shown, in agreement with the silicide‐growth theory of Walser and Bene, that VSi2 is the first silicide phase to nucleate and grow at single‐crystal‐Si–V interfaces. We have
