The alkoxy-derived thin films on Pt-passivated silicon substrates crystallized to single-phase perovskite SBT at temperatures below 550°C. The crystalline perfection improved and the crystallite size increased with temperatures up to 700°C. The adhesion, crystallinity, and microstructure of the Pt bottom electrodes were found to affect the cristallographic orientation of the SBT thin films. The SBT thin film showing higher degrees of (115) or (020)/(200) orientations, exhibited improved ferroelectric and fatigue properties.
