    • Abstract


      Barium erbium niobate (Ba2ErNbO6) has been developed as a new substrate for (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O𝑥 [Bi(2223)] superconductor film. Ba2ErNbO6 (BENO) has a cubic perovskite structure with lattice constant, 𝑎 = 8.318 Å. The Bi(2223) superconductor does not show any detectable chemical reaction with BENO even under extreme processing conditions. Dip coated Bi (2223) thick film, Ba2ErNbO6 substrate, gave a 𝑇c (0) of 110 K and current density of ∼ 4 × 103 A cm-2 at 77 K and zero magnetic field.
