We have fabricated Josephson junctions in YBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub 7-/spl delta// (YBaCuO) thin films by the irradiation of focused ion beam (FIB). We used Be/sup 2+/ ions with the energy of 200 keV. When the fluence of Be/sup 2+/ ions was 1.2/spl times/10/sup 16/ ions/cm/sup 2/, the I-V characteristics of the junctions at 4.2 K showed RSJ-like characteristics with the excess current. The I/sub c/R/sub n/ product of the junctions was 1.1 mV at 6.3 K. Shapiro steps up to 20th step could be observed by the irradiation of 8.47 GHz microwave at 6.3 K. The magnetic modulation curve of the junction at 4.2 K was similar to the Fraunhofer pattern. These characteristics remained unaltered after preservation in a desiccator for 6 months.
