The chemical and structural properties of epitaxial Y1Ba2Cu3(F)O thin films, fabricated by multilayer electron beam evaporation, are evaluated, both laterally and vertically, as a function of various annealing schedules by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) using a high resolution scanning ion microprobe. The presence of residual F is related to the superconducting transition temperature of these materials.
