Ferroelectric and dielectric properties were measured for BaTiO3 thin films prepared by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition which were highly a-axis textured. No ferroelectric hysteresis was observed from the as-deposited BaTiO3 films on Pt coated MgO. Upon applying an electric field exceeding a threshold electric field Et ≈ 50-100 kV/cm, a ferroelectric hysteresis was observed. A spontaneous polarization Ps ≥ 15 μC/cm2 was measured for the textured films.
