High Tc superconducting thin films of YBa2Cu3O7-(delta ) (YBCO) were deposited on sapphire substrates with buffer layers of yttria-stabilized zirconia and cerium oxide by using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. The epitaxial relationship between the substrate and buffer layers as well as the buffer layer and the superconducting film was established. Furthermore, using the same thin film technique, YBCO superconducting thin films were deposited on both sides of substrates of up to 5 cm in diameter. The superconducting properties of the films on both the sapphire with buffer layers and large-area substrates were comparable to the ones of the best YBCO films.
