Abstract: Attempts to highlight quantitatively the growth and development of world literature in the field of pulsed laser deposition in terms of publication output as per Science Citation Index (1982-2006). During 1982-2006 a total of 8534 papers were published by the scientists in the field pulsed laser deposition. The average number of publications published per year was 341.36. The highest number of papers 1074 were published in 2005. There were 84 countries involved in the research in this field. USA is the top producing country with 2014 publications (19.35%) followed by Japan with 1553 publications (14.92%), Peoples-R-China with 1106 publications (10.63%), Germany with 763 publications (7.33%) South Korea with 694 publications (6.67%) and France with 615 publications (5.91%). India ranked 9th among other countries with 291 publications during 1985- 2006. Authorship and collaboration trend was towards multi-authored papers. There were 8338 (97.70%) multi-authored publications and 196 (2.30 %) single authored publications. Chinese Academy of Sciences (Peoples-R-China) topped the list with 304 publications followed by Nanjing University (Peoples-R-China) with 244 publications, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan) with 233 publications and CNRS (France) with 217 publications. The most productive Indian institutions were: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai with 52 publications and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore with 49 publications. The most prolific Indian authors were: R. Pinto (Indian-Inst-Technol-Bomaby, Mumbai) with 38 publications, M.S. Hegde (Indian-Inst-Sci, Bangalore) with 31 publications, S.B. Ogale (Univ Pune, Pune) with 29 publications, L.M. Kukreja (Raja Ramanna Ctr-Adv-Technol, Indore) with 21 publications, P. Misra (Raja Ramanna Ctr-Adv-Technol, Indore) with 16 publications, R.K. Thareja (Indian-Inst-Technol-Kanpur) with 15 publications. The most preferred journals by the scientists were: Applied Physics Letters with 962 publications, Journal of Applied Physics with 714 publications, Applied Surface Science with 614 publications and Thin Solid Films with 541 publications.
