Epitaxial Fe-Te-S thin films (thickness range 100-200nm) were deposited by pulsed laser deposition at 400 °C on SrTiO3(100) and MgO(100) single-crystal substrates. The films reached the zero-resistance condition: Tc 0 = 3.54K for on SrTiO3 and 5.37K for on MgO, and presented a large upper critical field: T for on SrTiO3 and 74.2T for on MgO, using 90% of the normal state resistance and the Werthamer-Helfand-Hohenberg model. The coherence length ξ0 is very short: 2.30nm for on SrTiO3 and 2.10nm for on MgO. The film grown on MgO showed T; then the isotropic parameter γ is 1.09. The best J c observed is 104Acm-2 (at 2K, self-field) for the sample deposited on MgO.
