Titanium nitride (TiN) and superconducting YBa 2 Cu 3 O 7 (YBCO) thin films have been deposited sequentially on SrTiO 3 (STO)(100) substrates by in situ pulsed laser ablation. The TiN films were originally intended to serve as the lower contact electrode of the c-axis YBCO thin films. It was found that, although high-quality YBCO films could be obtained with the YBCO/TiN/STO(100) bilayer structure, the TiN(100) layer was oxidized which changed the structure into YBCO/TiO 2 /STO(100) during YBCOdoi:10.1143/jjap.40.l377 fatcat:ig7i26jz6bgz5efhtgjuaxirge
