Abstract

BiFeO3 thin film has been prepared on Pt/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrate at a temperature as low as 450°C by pulsed-laser deposition. The BiFeO3 thin film is perovskite single-phase, while any nonperovskite phase, such as orthorhombic Bi2Fe4O9, is not included. Dielectric constant of the film is 87, dielectric loss is 0.03, and leakage current density is low. The coexistence of ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism has been confirmed by means of the P-E and M-H hysteresis characteristics. The BiFeO3 thin film shows a well-saturated hysteresis loop with twice the remanent polarization 2Pr = 54 μC/cm2 and coercive field 2E c = 100 kV/cm for a maximum applied electric field of 100 kV/cm, and also shows a saturated weak ferromagnetic hysteresis loop, as well as a small remanent magnetization with 2M r = 0.6 emu/cm3 and 2 Hc = 200 Oe for a maximum magnetic field of 10 kOe at room temperature.
