Abstract

Recently, long coated conductors, in which superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) thin films are deposited on oriented metallic tapes, have been developed, and high critical current densities Jc are required for their application to various power devices. In this review we present our recent investigations on the flux pinning mechanisms in YBCO thin films that determines Jc.
