However, there have been few experi- ments to examine the effect of second phase addition on melt-processed YBCO thick films [24].

In this paper, we have studied the superconducting properties of screen- printed YBCO thick films with BaSnO3 and ultrafine Sn particles additions.

Later on other two approaches proved to be successful: bulding up a layered distribution of a second phase using a multilayer deposition (quasi-superlattices) [6], and, respectively, by distribution.

The high resistivity of YBCO grain boundaries is mainly attributed to the presence of solidified liquid phase and cracks at these boundaries. Using the liquid phase removal method, YBCO melt textured bars, over 10 cm in length and cm2 in cross-section, are processed with "clean" grain boundaries free of secondary phases and cracks.

film growth. In-situ high-T c superconducting films are superconducting when they are removed from the growth chamber. In-situ films are deposited onto a heated substrate. The presence of oxygen and substrate temperature of about oC to oC is essential for crystallization of tetragonal YBCO.

On nontextured substrates, YBCO superconducting thick films were fabricated using a simple screen-printing method, from Cu-free powders (Y2O3 and BaCO3).
