Abstract:High-Tc SNS-type Josephson junctions and DC SQUIDs were successfully fabricated using hetero-epitaxially grown multilayers of YBa2Cu3Ox and PrBa2Cu3Ox. These layers are c-axis oriented and hence edges of the multilayers give rise to a current flow in the ab-plane between the electrodes of a Josephson junction. The necessary structuring was done by Ar ion beam etching. The individual junctions exhibit a supercurrent up to 80 K. The IcRn-product of these junctions usually has a lower limit of 8 mV at 4.2 K. Voltage modulation of the first DC SQUIDs can be observed up to 66 K. Details on the fabrication and measurements are presented.
