Abstract
Intrinsic Josephson junctions with single crystals or thin films of high-Tc superconductor have been studied. For this purpose, BiSrCaCuO (2212) films have been deposited on tilted strontium titanate substrates using a de spu ttering system. Superconducting and structural properties of these films ha ve already been reported in II]. In the present study, the surface morpholo gy of films deposited on the tilted substrates is investigated by Atomic Fo rce Microscopy, Many steps and terraces are seen in the film on the tilted substrate. Furthermore, two more films, prepared on the tilted substrates s imultaneously are subjected to resistivity measurements across and along th e terraces, respectively. The anisotropy parameter gamma,((ratio of resisti vity measured along the c-axis and the a-axis)<^>0.5), calculated from the resistivity measurement is found to be of the order of 50 in the films. A s emiconductor-like behavior has been observed above the critical temperature in the temperature - resistivity characteristics, across the terraces.
