We have used a scanning SQUID microscope to directly observe the half-integer flux quantum effect, in epitaxial films of , at the meeting point of a tricrystal substrate of in a geometry chosen to show this effect for a d-wave superconductor. This observation, when considered along with recent photoemission results, proves that the in-plane order parameter for this high-Tc cuprate superconductor closely follows symmetry.
