We present the formation of MgB coatings by simple and novel aerosol deposition technique which has a potential to escalate towards the fabrication of long superconducting tapes. The thin MgB coatings were produced by using pre-synthesized MgB powder. The ability of this technique to form a precursor powder in a thin film form has greatly reduced the intricacies involved in the synthesis of MgB by other techniques like hybrid physical chemical vapor deposition etc. The as-synthesized thin films were characterized by the x-ray diffraction technique to study the structural properties. The thin films were found to be x-ray amorphous in nature depicting the formation of frustrated structure which showed a superconducting transition onset at around 36 K.
