Superconducting thin films of Y1Ba2Cu3 O7 −x have been deposited on (100) Y-ZrO2 substrates by pulsed excimer laser ablation from anunreacted mixture of Y2O3, BaCO3 and CuO. The films deposited at substrate temperature of 680°C and oxygen partial pressure of 200 mtorr were found to be superconducting with zero resistive transition temperature of 89 K and critical current density of over 3 × 105 A/cm2 at 77 K. These results are compared with those obtained by laser ablation from a sintered superconducting pellet.
