The epitaxial thin films of spin-frustrated Sm2Mo2O7 were fabricated by a pulsed-laser deposition. The X-ray diffraction method and the temperature gradient method were combined for high throughput optimization of the film quality. It was observed that the excess supply of molybdenum which compensates the volatile molybdenum related species improves the crystallinity.
