Title: Thin-film of a high-temperature superconductor compound and method

Abstract: A thin-film of a high temperature superconducting compound having the formula M.sub.1-x CuO.sub.2-y, where M is Ca, Sr, or Ba, or combinations thereof, x is 0.05 to 0.3, and x>y. The thin film has a T.sub.c (zero resistivity) of about 40 K. Also disclosed is a method of producing the superconducting thin film.
