Lanthanum doped bismuth titanate (Bi3.25La0.75Ti3O12 abbreviated as BLT) has been known as one of typical materials for Bi-layered perovskite structure which possess several unique properties such as good fatigue with metal electrode and stable remanent polarization, hence it has potential applications in ferroelectric random access memory. In this work, the BLT thin films were fabricated on Pt/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates by using a solution process, and then their features including crystal structure, surface morphology, and electrical properties were characterized by using X-ray diffraction system (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and electrical measurement system (Radiant Precision LC 10), respectively. The obtained results point out that the BLT thin film annealed at 725oC is mostly optimum from a viewpoint of film quality and ferroelectricity. In particular, the optimum BLT thin film having a thickness of 200 nm does not contain any cracks on the sample surface, and the grain size is closed to 400 nm from SEM observation. XRD patterns imply that the BLT thin film had stoichiometric structure with preferred orientations of (117) and (006), when annealed at temperatures higher than 725oC. In addition, we found the influence of La (0.75) dopping on c-axis-oriented growth of BLT thin films is clear from the structural analysis. The remanent polarization of optimum BLT thin film is approximately 10 µC/cm2, but the ferroelectric hysteresis loops are not saturated at low applied voltages.
