Abstract

Antiferroelectric (Pb,La) (Zr,Sn,Ti) O3 thin films have been fabricated on LaNi O3 PtTiSi O2 Si and PtTiSi O2 Si substrates by a sol-gel processing technique. The films grown on LaNi O3 -buffered silicon substrates showed a dense columnar microstructure and were highly (100)-oriented while those grown on Pt-buffered silicon substrates showed an equiaxed microstructure without any obvious preferred orientation. The relationship between the orientation of films and the saturation polarization was studied. The phase switching field and the dielectric constant were investigated as a function of film thickness.
