Ferroelectric thin films of Bi4Ti3O12 and SrBi2Ta2O9, have been deposited on substrates up to 3 inches in diameter by the so-called off-axis Pulsed Laser Deposition technique. In order to promote epitaxial growth, the Bi4Ti3O12 and SrBi2Ta2O9 thin films have been deposited onto epitaxial thin film templates of CeO2/YSZ and on the conductive oxide (La1-xSrx)CoO3 (LSCO) al1 deposited by off-axis PLD. The thickness and composition uniformity of the ferroelectric films, electrodes and buffer layers are important parameters with regard to their possible application. The thickness uniformities achieved are in the range of 5 % to 15% of the mean thickness.
