The growth and crystallographic analysis of tf-axis-oriented YBa2Cu3Ox (abbreviated to YBCO) grains in c-axis- oriented films on NdGa03 substrates is described, a-axis-oriented grains grow at high substrate temperatures and high oxygen pressures.Reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) patterns and 0-scan (in-plane rotation) X-ray measurements reveal that the grains exhibit a twofold symmetry indicating independent b- and c-axis orientations in the surface plane.The in-plane orientation of ^-axis-oriented grains is thought to be responsible for the rectangular surface lattice of (110) NdGa03 substrate.
