(001)-oriented BiFeO3 and SrRuO3 films were deposited on SrTiO3 and DyScO3 substrates to study oxygen-vacancy density as a function of cooling oxygen pressure. During cooling of as-grown samples at ≤0.01 Torr oxygen pressure, SrRuO3 films decompose, BiFeO3 films can accommodate a significant fraction of oxygen vacancies, SrTiO3 substrates acts as a sink for vacancies, and DyScO3 substrates remaining largely unaffected by oxygen vacancies. These phenomena can be explained according to the electronegativity of the different B-site atoms, because changes in B-site ion valence play a key role in maintaining charge equilibrium during oxygen vacancy production in many ABO3-type oxides.
