Paper Abstract

BaTiO3 thin films are prepared on ITO-coated Corning 1737 glass. The solution is prepared from a double metal ethoxide and the films are deposited by spin coating and annealing at 700°C for 2 hours in an O2 atmosphere. The films are characterized using x-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, micro-raman, UV-VIS spectroscopy, and Sawyer-Tower Bridge. The pure perovskite phase of BaTiO3 is identified by x-ray diffraction. The tetragonality is revealed from Raman study by identifying the symmetrical dependent Raman shift at about 306 cm-1. The ferroelectricity of the film is confirmed by the P-E hysteresis loop. The films are highly transparent, with an absorption edge at 3.73eV. These desirable features indicate that the films have potential in electronic display and electro-optical applications.
