Abstract:We describe the development of high-Tc Josephson junction devices for applications at millimeter wave frequencies. These devices consist of ramp type YBCO/PBCO/YBCO Josephson junctions that are equipped with a noble metal log-periodic antenna. Growth conditions of all layers, as well as etching, cleaning and annealing procedures are being optimized, to guarantee well-defined device properties. Lowering the deposition temperature of the thick PBCO layer strongly improved its isolating properties, which is of extreme importance for good reproducability of junction fabrication. Special attention is being focused on the optimization of the contact of noble metal to YBCO as well its adhesion to the substrate. Best results are obtained using sputtered gold contacts, after a soft Ar ion sputter clean treatment of the damaged YBCO surface, followed by an anneal procedure.
