The results of a transmission electron microscopic (TEM) and X-ray microanalysis (EDS) study of Yba2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) films grown on vicinal (011) SrTiO3 substrates are presented. The YBCO films tend to be single crystalline grown in single variant orientation with c-axis =;45° from the surface. Cracks, second phase precipitates (CuO and Y2O3), and a few small YBCO grains in other orientations were revealed in the films.
