x (-2212) single layers were prepared on substrates in different conditions of oxygen pressure using a 266 laser generated by slower Q-switched YAG system. Several X-ray diffraction methods were employed to investigate the crystal structure of -2212. X-ray diffraction (XRD) methods of θ-2θ and ϕ scan were used to verify the epitaxial growth of -2212(001), and reciprocal space mapping (RSM) of ω- was employed to investigate in-plane lattice constants and structural modulation. Satellite peaks generated by structural modulation on the RSM showed asymmetric distribution around the main peak. The periodicity of modulation was evaluated using satellite peaks on the RSM. With increasing oxygen pressure, the lattice constant expanded along the c-axis and contracted along the b-axis, while structural modulation expanded along both b- and c-axis directions.
