We studied various electrical and optical properties of Europium (1 atomic %) incorporated BaTiO3 film on n-Si(100) substrate. The thin film structure was analyzed by X-ray diffraction. Film thickness and optical refractive index were measured with an ellipsometer. P-E hysteresis measurement shows the remnant polarization of 37 micro-C/cm2 in BaTiO3:Eu film. C-V measurements on the pure BaTiO3 film show recovery of capacitance across sweeping voltage ranges with a narrow transition zone due to the polarization change. On the other hand, C-V and I-V measurements on the BaTiO3:Eu film show that Europium incorporation increases positively charged states in the BaTiO3 layer such that BaTiO3:Eu/n-Si interface behaves like a leaky p-n junction.
