Abstract
THE HIGH PRESSURE LIMITS OF A NEW PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE FOR SURFACE ELEMENTAL AND ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS ARE BEING EXPLORED. THE TECHNIQUE SHOULD BE USEFUL IN THE MILLITORR PRESSURE REGIME, THUS ALLOWING MEASUREMENT OF THIN FILM STOICHIOMETRY DURING GROWTH AND PROCESSING. THE PRESENT RESEARCH IS FOCUSING ON ANALYSIS OF YTTRIUM-BARIUM-COPPER-OXYGEN (YBCO) SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS SUBJECTED TO HIGH PRESSURES OF OXYGEN. IN PHASE I, THE TECHNIQUE IS BEING CALIBRATED USING STANDARD YBCO SURFACES, ITS HIGH PRESSURE LIMIT IS BEING DETERMINED, AND REAL-TIME MEASUREMENT OF SUBSTRATE/THIN FILM INTERDIFFUSION IS BEING ATTEMPTED.
