Bismuth titanate (Bi4Ti3O12; BIT)-based ferroelectric materials are proposed from the view of the "Site-engineering", where the Bi-site ions are substituted by lanthanoid ions (La3+ and Nd3+) and Ti-site ions by other ions with higher charge valence (V5+). In the present study, influences of vanadium (V) - substitution for (Bi, M)4Ti3O12 thin films [M = lanthanoid] on the ferroelectric properties are evaluated. V-substituted (Bi, M)4Ti3O12 films have been fabricated using a chemical solution deposition (CSD) technique on the (111)Pt/Ti/SiO2/(100)Si substrate. Remnant polarization of (Bi, La)4Ti3O12 and (Bi, Nd)4Ti3O12 films has been improve by the V-substitution independent of the coercive field. The processing temperature of BLT and BNT films could also be lowered by the V-substitution.
