The thrust of this contract was to investigate the electrical noise power generated by high temperature superconductors in the temperature region just above their superconducting transition temperature. Previous measurements had shown that for bulk superconducting samples the noise power peaked in the transition region, just where bolometer type detectors would be most sensitive. As a result of the work supported by this contract, there are now much more systematic measurements of the 1f noise power in high T sub c superconductors-- including bulk samples, composites of normal metals and high T sub c materials, thin films, and single crystals.
