Abstract

Superconductors The discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in 1986 created the greatest sensation in modern physical science. Since then a vast number of research papers, reviews and books have appeared on this subject. Several superconducting cuprates have been designed and characterized and although we know about the properties of these materials, we still do not have ‘an adequate model to describe these properties, particularly in the normal state. A number of workers have tried to make use of these materials for a variety of applications. While applications in transformers and power generators require high current densities, a number of electronic applications have become possible. One such application is in the area of high-T, superconducting quantum interference device(SQUIDS) fabricated from thin films. Magnetometers based on SQUIDS have been fabricated from thin films of cuprates operating at 77K and they are sufficiently sensitive therefore to be found in a variety of applications in physical and medical sciences. There is considerable scope for work in this area and it is IikeIy chat there will be many more applications for these SQUIDS. Clarke
