ABSTRACT
The chemical composition, structure and extension of the Pb-enriched nonferroelectric near-surface region of stoichiometric (Pb, La)TiO[sub 3] ferroelectric films was characterized by x-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy and x-ray photoemission spectroscopy. Its origin as a result of the Pb excess segregation from the growing (Pb, La)TiO[sub 3] bulk and subsequent oxidation was revealed. A postdeposition procedure to control its composition and thereby its properties was provided. Thus, a decrease of the near-surface Pb excess of about 75% was achieved. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    It has been demonstrated that Si substitution in a PbTiO[sub 3] target helps to avoid the formation of a pyrochlore phase, which otherwise occurs during fabrication of the films directly on Si(100) by the pulsed laser deposition technique. The films are perfectly c-axis oriented. Moreover, the...
