Properties of YBaCuO thin films are evaluated in two distinct frequency ranges using different patterns made during the same process on LaAlO/sub 3/ substrate. Microwave superconducting properties in the range 1-45 GHz are determined by S-parameters measurement of a superconducting coplanar waveguide in the range 53-95 K. We obtain a surface resistance of 0.4 m/spl Omega/ at 10.8 GHz and 77 K. Radio-frequency properties are obtained by measuring the Q-factor of a superconducting resonator (YBCO multiturn transmission lines separated by a sapphire sheet) dedicated to surface magnetic resonance imaging. At 52 MHz and 77 K we measure a Q-factor of 33180. The extraction of the radio-frequency surface resistance from Q-factor measurements in the 64-95 K range takes into account external loss mechanisms and nonuniform normal current distribution and leads to a 0.0093-/spl mu//spl Omega/ surface resistance at 52 MHz and 77 K, in good agreement with the value extrapolated from microwave measurements assuming an /spl omega//sup 2/ frequency dependence. The evaluation of /spl lambda//sub 0/ is carried out by using several models for X/sub L/(t). Least squares fits to data in the microwave and radio-frequency domain are performed using the Gorter-Casimir expression for X/sub L/(t) and give the same /spl lambda//sub 0/ value for both devices.
