We investigate the effects of directional pinning due to the layered structure and to columnar defects on the microwave response in YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7-delta) films. We present measurements of the field-induced microwave resistivity at 48 GHz and 21 GHz taken in various relative orientations between the microwave currents, do magnetic field and (a, b) planes. From measurements taken in the Loventz-force-free configuration we experimentally show the relevance of the magnetic field induced increase of quasiparticle (qp) density. We identify the vortex motion contribution, and extract the vortex parameters. We estimate a pinning frequency of order 30 GHz when the field is aligned to the (a, b) plane. Secondly, we show that the introduction of columnar defects gives rise to a strong pinning along the columns, detectable even at 48 GHz. The pinning frequency appears to be of the same magnitude than for pinning by the layered structure.

Abstract

We investigate the effects of directional pinning due to the layered structure and to columnar defects on the microwave response in YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7-delta) films. We present measurements of the field-induced microwave resistivity at 48 GHz and 21 GHz taken in various relative orientations between the microwave currents, do magnetic field and (a, b) planes. From measurements taken in the Loventz-force-free configuration we experimentally show the relevance of the magnetic field induced increase of quasiparticle (qp) density. We identify the vortex motion contribution, and extract the vortex parameters. We estimate a pinning frequency of order 30 GHz when the field is aligned to the (a, b) plane. Secondly, we show that the introduction of columnar defects gives rise to a strong pinning along the columns, detectable even at 48 GHz. The pinning frequency appears to be of the same magnitude than for pinning by the layered structure.
