The Growth of REBCO High Temperature Superconductor

For fundamental study and practical application, the growth of REBCO high temperature superconductors has been investigated in our lab; the progress is reviewed on three aspects. 

1) Single crystal of REBCO with the world-record size, stoichiometry chemical composition control and superconducting properties by Top-Seeded Solution-Growth (TSSG); 

2) Novel seeds and phase relation study on the growth of REBCO single domain bulk with the large size and high performance by Top-Seeded Melt-Growth (TSMG); 

3) Orientation transition (out of plane, in-plane alignment), its mechanism and film properties by Liquid Phase Epitaxy (LPE).

Prof. X. Yao, from Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ., got his Bachelor and Master degrees in Dept. Mater. Sci. and Eng., of Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ., and got his Ph.D. at Univ. of Liverpool, in. 1993. He was a research scientist at ISTEC in Japan (1993-2001). During work at ISTEC, he has grown the world record, large-sized REBCO single crystals. In his new lab at Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ (from 2002), he has extended the growth of REBCO crystals to the bulks and LPE films, focusing his interests on the phase formation and the growth mode in various RE-Ba-Cu-O systems. He has published more than 160 papers in journals, indexed in the Web of Science – Journal Citation Reports such as Supercond. Sci. & Technol.,J. Phys.: Condens. Matter, J. Cry. Growth,Prog. solid state ch., J. Appl. Phys., Cryst. Growth Des., J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys.,J. Phys. Chem. B, J Am. Ceram. Soc. , Dalton Trans., CrystEngComm., Prog. in Mat. Sci.
