Epitaxial BaTiO3 thin films were grown in situ on (100) LaAlO3 by low-pressure organometallic chemical vapor deposition using the precursors Ba (hexafluoroacetylacetonate)2 (tetraglyme) and titanium tetraisopropoxide. The phase composition and epitaxial quality were sensitive to the reactant partial pressures and growth temperature. Deposition at 800°C yielded [100]-oriented BaTiO3 films. In-plane epitaxy was confirmed for the BaTiO3 films by x-ray diffraction.
