Superconducting thin films of Y-Ba-Cu-O produced by laser ablation of nonsuperconducting targets by 1064 nm neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet radiation in an oxygen ambient are described. Deposition rates of 100 Ã…/s were achieved for 1 J pulses at 30 Hz. Scanning Auger microscopy indicates phase segregated films. Optical probing of ablated flux suggests it consists of atomic and molecular fragments.
