YBa2Cu3Ox films were grown on MgO(lOO) substrates by liquid phase epitaxy. Their structural and electrical properties were examined. From TEM plan-view images, it is found that the film consists of large grains whose misorientation angles are less than 1°. Although the DC critical current density values decrease with increasing the film thickness, the critical current density value of 9.3 × 105 A/cm2 at 77 K is obtained for a 7 μm-thick film. A microstrip resonator at 10.8 GHz with a YBCO ground plane shows Qv values of 14200 at 77 K and 23300 at 40 K, which correspond to surface resistance values of 650 and 400 μΩ, respectively. By using a microstrip line resonator with a Ti/Au ground plane, the critical field of the film at 77 K and 10.8 GHz is estimated to be 30 Oe. The third-order intercept of the resonator with the Ti/Au ground plane is the input power of +43dBm and the output power of +30dBm at 77 K.
