The crystallization kinetics of SBT and SBT-BTT thin films formed by sol-gel technique on Pt substrate was studied. Phase formation and crystal growth are greatly affected by the film composition and crystallization temperature. Isothermal kinetics analysis was performed on x-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns of the thin films heated in the range 730 to 760° at 10° intervals. Activation energy and Avrami exponent values were determined for the fluorite to Aurivillus phase formation. A reduction of ∼55 kJ/mol in activation is observed for the SBT-BTT system. A comparison has been made and the possible crystallization mechanism is discussed.
