Low temperature crystallization of sol-gel processed Pb0.5Ba0.5TiO3; Powders and Oriented thin Films, Suresh C. Pillai, S. W. Boland and S.M. Haile, Journal of American ceramic society. 87, 2004, 1388-1391

Abstract

A novel sol– gel process suitable for depositing thin-film lead
barium titanate has been developed. X-ray diffraction analysis
showed perovskite phase crystallization to occur at a temperature
as low as 400°C with single-phase Pb0.5Ba0.5TiO3 (PBT)
resulting at a temperature as low as 500°C. Small concentrations
of barium carbonate were evident by X-ray diffraction at
400°C, and indications of minor, carbonate-containing phases
were evident by FTIR at 600°C. Deposition of the sol by spin
coating on single-crystal and thin-film MgO on silicon resulted
in highly oriented PBT films after calcination at 600°C. Mixed
(100)/(001) films were obtained on single-crystal MgO,
whereas entirely (100) films were obtained on thin-film MgO
