To find the amount of oxygen deficiency in certain ceramic superconductors (experimental); to review and develop the existing superconductivity theories as relevant to ceramic superconductors (theoretical); to study the critical current enhancement phenomenon in epitaxial films of YBa2Cu3O7-A on antiferroelectric SrTiO3 substrate; if time permits, study the energy spectra of the superconductors using a pulse dye laser.
