Metalorganic deposition (MOD) using trifluoroacetates is considered to be one of the most promising methods for coated conductors, because it enables us to obtain very high Jc films with low-cost facilities. We have optimized various processing conditions in this method and successfully obtained critical current density (Jc) of 4.1 MA/cm2 (77 K, 0 T) for the YBa 2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) film of 1800 Å in thickness on CeO2 buffered YSZ single crystal, which was fired at 800°C. In the case of YBCO films on buffered metallic substrates, it is difficult to fabricate under the same deposition condition. Then low temperature heat treatment is required for deposition on metal substrate. On the other hand, such heat treatment also permits non-reacted BaF2 in fired film, that leads to low Jc of the film, Therefore it is the key to fabricate YBCO film with entire reaction of BaF2 by the low temperature heat treatment. We have investigated chemical reactions in firing and established a firing profile to fabricate YBCO film even at 725°C. With this profile, we can successfully fabricate the YBCO film at 725°C on CeO2 buffered YSZ single crystal which has Jc of 3.0 MA/cm2 and the YBCO film on CeO2 (sputtered)/YSZ (ion-beam-assisted deposition: IBAD) buffered Ni based alloy (hastelloy) tape which has Jc of 0.81 MA/cm2
