In order to build high‐temperature superconductor (HTS) multichip modules (MCMs), it is necessary to grow several epitaxial layers of YBCO that are separated by thick dielectric layers without seriously affecting the quality of the YBCO layers. In this work, we have successfully fabricated YBCO/YSZ/SiO2/YSZ/YBCO structures on single‐crystal LaAlO3 substrates using a combination of pulsed laser deposition for the YBCO layers and ion‐beam‐assisted rf sputtering to obtain biaxially aligned YSZ intermediate layers. The bottom YBCO layer had a Tc∼89 K, Jc∼7.2×105 A/cm2 at 77 K, whereas the top YBCO layer had a Tc∼86 K, Jc∼6×105 A/cm2 at 77 K. The magnetic field and temperature dependence of Jc for the YBCO films in the multilayer have been obtained. The results for each of the YBCO layers within the YBCO/YSZ/SiO2/YSZ/YBCO structure are quite similar to those for a good quality single‐layer YBCO film. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
