The effect of incorporation of (BTO) nanoparticles on the flux pinning properties of laser deposited YBCO:BTO thin films has been studied. Substantial increase in critical current density and pinning force density of the nanocomposite thin films was observed. The study of temperature and field dependence of of YBCO and YBCO:BTO thin films indicates similar type of pinning. The lattice mismatch between YBCO and BTO seems to introduce more defects resulting in improved flux pinning properties.
