The effect of BaCeO3 (BCO) dopant concentration on magnetically obtained irreversibility field B-irr and upper critical field B-c2 is investigated in YBa2Cu3O6+x (YBCO) thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition on SrTiO3 (001) substrates. The unchanged values of B-irr and B-c2 are connected to the structural properties where BCO has been observed to form non-elongated and randomly distributed particles within the whole concentration range of 0 - 10 wt.%. This indicates a different type of flux pinning mechanism for BCO-doped YBCO than for the widely studied BaZrO3-doped YBCO where increased B-irr and B-c2 values were observed.
