Using a specially designed off-axis faced magnetron sputtering chamber we have performed in situ x-ray diffraction studies of the growth of YBa 2Cu3Ox films using a synchrotron light source. The orientation and rocking curve width were studied as a function of substrate temperature, O2/Ar partial pressures, and deposition rate. Growth rate was studied on SrTiO3, LaAlO3, and MgO.
