abstract Thin YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO) films were deposited using DC-sputtering technique on NdGaO3 substrates, tilted from (110) orientation by 0-26degrees. The structure and surface quality of the substrates were carefully characterized to obtain reliable results of thin films deposition. Structural, morphological and electrical properties of the YBCO thin films show three different ranges of inclination angle: vicinal, intermediate and high. In the vicinal range the properties of the film are generally the same as of the standard films deposited on (110) NdGaO3 substrate. An increase of the inclination angle to the intermediate range results in a significant improvement of morphology and structural quality of the film. Best electrical parameters are measured for the films of the intermediate range also. Probable reason for such behavior is simultaneous and regular seeding of the film in the joints of facets on the substrate surface. Further increase of inclination angle leads to step bunching and oxygen out-diffusion, destroying both structural and electrical perfection of the tilted-axes YBCO film. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V.
