We measure the surface resistance of high-quality YBa2Cu3O7 superconducting films over a wide frequency range from 10 to 500 GHz using high-speed optoelectronic techniques. A direct comparison is made with the surface resistance of gold and superconducting niobium conductors. Using the measured surface resistance, the propagation characteristic of interconnects based on YBa2Cu307 super-conductors at 77 K is simulated and compared to gold transmission lines at 77 K and superconducting niobium lines at 7.7 K.
