Bi(Pb)SrCaCuO films have been deposited on single (MgO) and polycrystalline (poly MgO, CuO) substrates by DC sputtering. All the films became superconducting after post-annealing them in air. The films on single crystal MgO showedTc onset at 120 K andTc at 92 K. However, the extrapolated zero resistivity is obtained at 106 K. The ac susceptibility showed an onset at 106 K and a sharp transition at 85 K. The films on poly MgO and poly CuO had aTc=72 K. The preparation, X-ray diffraction and morphology of these samples are presented.
