The stringent requirements for the preparation of high Tc superconducting thin films, based on the demands for device fabrication, pose a major challenge to the number of thin film deposition and processing techniques. In this paper we examine the generic problems of the various techniques and expand on the capabilities of a pulsed laser deposition process. We show that using suitable processing steps the laser deposition technique for preparation of high-Tc thin films is emerging as a strong contender among the various thin film deposition techniques.
