    It is demonstrated that polycrystalline thin films of high Tc superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-x can be grown with clean grain boundaries, i.e., without a boundary layer of segregation or different phase. In clean stoichiometric samples, angular misorientations of grains may be the origin of weak link...
