We prepared REBa2Cu3O7- δ (RE= Gd, Sm, Dy, Er, Y) coated conductors on pulsed laser deposition (PLD) -CeO2/ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD) – Gd2Zr2O7 (GZO) / metal tapes by the PLD method and measured the characteristics in magnetic fields. The GdBa2Cu3O7- σ (Gd-123) films showed superior characteristics than others in magnetic fields and showed weak anisotropy. Critical current density (J c) value of the Gd-123 film was 3.87MA/cm2 at self-field and 0.19MA/cm2 at 3 T of perpendicular field to the tape surface in liquid nitrogen (77 K). Angular dependences in magnetic fields (Jc -Θ) of the Gd-123 and the SmBa2Cu3O7- σ (Sm-123) were superior to others and peaks in Jc -Θ were found also at 0 degree. The reduction ratios of Jc in Jc -Θ for the Gd-123 film and the Sm-123 film were smaller than other films. Transmission electron microscopy showed that the Gd-123 film had many stacking faults. It may be considered that this stacking faults naturally introduced by the PLD method contribute to improvement of anisotropy of Jc -Θ in the Gd-123 film.
