Thermal cycling behavior of YBCO high temperature superconductor thick films coated on different ceramic substrates was studied. It was found that the YBCO superconductor thick film coated on MgO substrate has a better thermal cycle resistance than Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ substrate; the cycle number for initiating thermal fatigue crack significantly decreases as… CONTINUE READING
