Abstract

The striking influence of the growth kinetics and substrate enhanced surface mobility on the control of the self-assembly of rare earth tantalate particles (1.5 mol% of nanoparticles in YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7) thin films) is demonstrated. Strongly enhanced flux pinning, control of the anisotropy property and superior critical current densities were achieved. Owing to the unique ability to probe nanoparticle self-assembly through determination of the nature and extent of the anisotropy of the superconducting properties, this system serves as the perfect model system for understanding how to tune and control functional nanocomposite nanostructures for a wide range of multifunctional applications.
