In the high-Tc oxide superconductors, the coherence length along the c axis is very short. This fact yields that the layer structure itself works as strong pinning centers of the vortices. The critical current density estimated from this pinning mechanism is very high, and comparable to the critical current density measured in single crystal films of high quality.
