Pr1–xCaxMnO3 thin films have been deposited through an in situ metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) process using a molten multi‐metal source, consisting of the Pr(hfa)3·diglyme, Ca(hfa)2·tetraglyme, and Mn(tmhd)3 precursor mixture on single crystal substrates such as LaAlO3 (001) and MgO (001). Optimization of processing parameters has allowed the deposition of homogeneous thin films in morphology, composition, and thickness. The effect of substrate has been assessed in relation to structure and morphology.Field emission scanning electron microscope of a Pr0.7Ca0.3MnO3 film deposited at 1000 °C on MgO (001).
