Abstract

We report, in detail, on precursor concentration monitoring in the metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) of YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO) by ultrasonic measurement and a newly developed feedback system to solve reproducibility problems. The fluctuation of the flow rate of dipivaloylmethanate (DPM) compounds has been clearly observed. We have proposed a feedback system using an ultrasonic concentration analyzer and two sets of mass flow controllers for each precursor, and have proven the validity of the operation.
