Hydrothermally derived films of BaTiO3 were fabricated by reacting thin layers of titanium organometallic liquid precursors in aqueous solutions containing Ba(OH)2 and having a high pH. Cubic submicron polycrystalline films of BaTiO3 (thickness ≈1 μm) were formed at 70 °C. Low concentrations of block copolymers of polybutadiene and polystyrene were incorporated into the liquid precursor to prevent precursor film cracking. Higher polymer concentrations allowed fabrication of polymer/ceramic composite films by virtue of the low temperature used in hydrothermal processing.
