Superconducting films of YBa 2Cu3O7−6 obtained by laser ablation on MgO and ZrO2 substrates were investigated by soft x-ray absorption fine structure technique (XAFS) at O K-edge. Local environment around oxygen atoms was probed and information on the distribution of the nearestneighbors was obtained. Much higher degree of local disorder than that in a bulk YBa2Cu3O7−δ sample was observed.
