The YBa2Cu3Oδ films were obtained directly on silver substrates by the sedimentation processes. The thicknesses of these films are of the order of several tens μ. The temperature dependences of the AC susceptibility of the films were measured and analyzed. The critical temperatures of these specimens obtained from the dispersion part of AC susceptibility vary from 89.2 K to 92.5 K. The critical currents were calculated from the absorption part of AC susceptibility using the Bean model. The temperature dependences of the critical currents were fitted using the Ginzburg-Landau strong coupling limit approach.
