Abstract

We have formed planar tunnel junctions between Pb films and YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}{delta}} single crystals with different surface oxygen stoichiometries. Oxygen losses have been induced by heating the crystals at 400 {degree}C in vacuum for different times. Low-leakage tunnel junctions have also been obtained in the case of the most degraded'' samples. As the oxygen deficiency increases, the Y-Ba-Cu-O gaplike structure gradually broadens and shifts towards higher energies. For thermally untreated samples, tunneling spectroscopy gives information on the local {ital T}{sub {ital c}}.
