In RE2−xCexCuO4−d (RE =rare earth) electron-doped cuprates, the superconductivity is harder to achieve since as-grown samples are antiferromagnetic up to high doping levels, and become superconducting only after a special annealing process. The role of the annealing treatment still constitutes an open question for n-type superconductors. We investigate the electrical and structural properties of Nd2−xCexCuO4 films grown by a sputtering technique in an oxygen deficient environment, in order to obtain information on the complete oxygen-phase diagram. The as-grown samples are non-superconducting and the structural properties are consistent with a deficiency of the oxygen content. Unexpectedly, a reducing thermal treatment at high temperature is able to induce superconductivity in these films. Our data seem to support the picture that the high-temperature annealing procedure induces a peculiar oxygen atoms distribution triggering the superconducting transition in these compounds.
