(103) fiber-textured SrBi2Nb2O9 thin films have been grown on Pt-coated Si substrates using a SrRuO3 buffer layer. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy reveals that the fiber texture arises from the local epitaxial growth of (111) SrRuO3 grains on (111) Pt grains and in turn (103) SrBi2Nb2O 9 grains on (111) SrRuO3 grains. The films exhibit remanent polarization values of 9 μC/cm2. The uniform grain orientation (fiber texture) should minimize grain-to-grain variations in the remanent polarization, which is important to continued scaling of ferroelectric memory device structures.
