Abstract

(001)-oriented epitaxial SrBi2Nb2O9 thin films have been grown by pulsed laser deposition on (001) SrTiO3 and (001) LaAlO3—Sr2AlTaO6 substrates at optimized growth conditions. 4-circle x-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, and transmission electron microscopy reveal highly oriented epitaxial films. Atomic force microscopy indicates spiral growth for films grown on SrTiO3 and layer-by-layer growth for films grown on LaAlO3—Sr2AlTaO6.
