Special Seminar

Crystal Growth of REBCO High Temperature Superconductor by Top-Seeded Solution-Growth (TSSG), Top-Seeded Melt-Growth (TSMG), and Liquid Phase Epitaxy (LPE)

Prof. Xin  Yao

by: Prof. Xin Yao

Date: Tuesday August 30, 2011

Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Location: Houston Science Center – Building 593 — Room 102

Overview

For fundamental study and practical application, the crystal growth of REBCO (RE=Nd, Sm, Gd, Y) high temperature superconductors has been investigated in our crystal growth lab. The progress is reviewed on three aspects. 1) Single crystal of REBCO with large size, stoichiometry chemical composition control and excellent 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). The phase formation and growth mode in various RE-Ba-Cu-O systems are discussed.
