    • Abstract

       

      In order to get good quality reproducible films of Tl : HTSC system, we have studied the different annealing conditions to finally achieve the optimized annealing condition. In the present investigation, Tl–Ca–Ba–Cu–O superconducting films have been prepared on YSZ (100) and MgO (100) single crystal substrates via precursor route followed by thallination. The post deposition heat treatments of the precursor films were carried out for various annealing temperatures (870°C, 890°C) and durations (1 and 2 min). The optimized thallination procedure occurred at 870°C for 2 min into good quality films with 𝑇c (𝑅 = 0) ∼ 103 K for YSZ and 𝑇c (𝑅 = 0) ∼ 98 K for MgO substrates, respectively. Further we have correlated the structural/microstructural characteristics of the films.
