A CeO2/YSZ/CeO2buffer layer structure was epitaxially deposited by pulsed laser deposition on a Pd seed layer grown on non magnetic Ni88Cr8W4alloy. Structural analyzes performed by x-ray diffraction and EBSD show a good texture, with typical YBCO FWHM of about 5° and 8.5° for in-plane and out-of-plane orientations, respectively. About 300 nm YBCO films deposited by PLD on such a buffer layer structure, show typical values of critical temperature of about 89 K and a critical current density greater than 0.6 MA/cm2at 77 K and self field. © 2005 IEEE.
