TiO2 film deposition by PAPLD with biased substrates is investigated into a wide range of laser fluence and oxygen pressure. It is established that plasma of the r.f. discharge excited inside PLD chamber strongly affects the films properties. TiO2 films deposited by PAPLD were found better than those produced by the conventional PLD with regard to their morphology, optical properties, and uniformity. So, at the high values of Knudsen number (lambda) /L < 1 with an r.f. power of 70 Watt, PAPLD markedly improves the TiO2 film stoichiometry for high laser fluence, and the deposition rate increases with it up to 2 A/s.
