ABSTRACT We have conducted the first experiments under
identical thermal, background, and surface preparation con-
ditions to compare metal-on-insulator growth morphology in
Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) and Physical Vapor Deposition
(PVD). Such films deposited from a thermal vapor are known
to exhibit a characteristic morphological progression beginning
with isolated three-dimensional islands and ending with a per-
colating, continuous film that conducts electrically. We have
studied this progression for Pulsed Laser Deposition, a tech-
