In addition, the measurement of microhardness of the intermetallic compounds and the substrate were conducted using a HX-1000 microhardness tester on the cross section of a coated coupon under a load of 25 g.
We believe that the yttrium-palladium boride carbide superconductor will prove to be the first of a new family of high-temperature [superconducting] intermetallic compounds, and we suggest that boride carbides (and borides) represent one road to high-temperature [superconductors] that is worthy of exploration," the Cava group writes.
