High rate deposition of HoBa2Cu3O 7-δ (HoBCO) layers using the pulsed laser deposition method were experimented for long high temperature superconducting (HTS) coated conductor. Laser conditions and oxygen ambient during HoBCO deposition were precisely inspected. This revealed that the deposition rate of HoBCO reached to 5 μm/min. Even at such high deposition rate, the Jc of HoBCO films remained over 105 A/cm2 on the biaxial buffered substrate fabricated by the inclined substrate deposition (ISD) method. Moreover continuous tape production equipments were installed to make a long and flexible coated conductor by ISD method. These equipments will enable us to fabricate of over 100 m long coated conductor. 55 m long coated conductor were fabricated by using these equipments as our first trial of long length fabrication. Evaluation of Jc distributions of 55 m coated conductor revealed that all parts of 1 m in the 55 m conductor had the Jc over 104 A/cm2.
