A study regarding the epitaxial growth of Y2O3-based buffer layer architectures on (001) textured Ni-V metallic substrates using both PLD and e-beam evaporation is presented. The as deposited films exhibit good structural and morphological properties indicating that the Y2O3is a suitable layer for epitaxial growth of YBCO superconducting films for power applications. Mainly, YBCO/CeO2/Y2O3/Ni-V and YBCO/CeO2/Y2O3/NiO/Ni-V architectures have been studied.
