Title Facile deposition of superconducting MgB2 thin films on substrates: a comparative investigation of electrochemical deposition and magnetron sputtering techniques
Abstract In this work, we investigate the application of two approaches-electrochemical deposition and magnetron sputtering of MgB2 powder, to fabricate MgB2 films with potential accelerator applications. While electrochemical deposition yielded MgB2 films showing superconducting properties, the adhesive strength was observed to be poor. Magnetron sputtering, on the other hand, provided uniform thin films with excellent adhesive properties but mismatch in stoichiometry meant that no superconductivity was observed. Further work to fine tune the deposition processes for large scale MgB2 deposition inside actual RF cavities is in progress.
