In situ deposition of high-Tc superconducting cuprate thin films has progressed tremendously recently, but further improvements are necessary before these films can be used in devices. This review concentrates on thin film growth technologies for LnBa2Cu3Ox (Ln = Y, Eu)—the Figure shows a boule and wafers of a suitable substrate, NdGaO3—and the fabrication of epitaxial multilayer structures, for example a super-conductor/insulator/superconductor combination.
