ABSTRACT - The existence of non-superconducting zones in YBa2Cu3O7- (YBCO) films below the transition temperature to the non-resistive state can be the cause of losses that limit the performances of YBCO devices. In this contribution, from the dependence on temperature of the surface critical current density of YBCO films we examine the possibility that their superconducting critical temperature is non-uniform along their c-axis.
