Strain engineering is a key to develop novel properties in functional materials. We report a strain mediated phase stabilization and epitaxial growth of bismuth ferrite(BiFeO3) thin films on LaAlO3 (LAO) substrates. The strain in the epitaxial layer is controlled by controlling the thickness of bottom electrode where the thickness of the BFO is kept constant. The thickness of La0.7Sr0.3MnO3(LSMO) template layer was optimized to grow completely strained tetragonal, tetragonal/rhombohedral mixed phase and fully relaxed rhombohedral phase of BFO layers. The results were confirmed with coupled-θ-2θ scan, and small area reciprocal space mapping. The piezoelectric d33 (˜ 45-48 pm/V) coefficient of the mixed phase was relatively larger than the strained tetragonal and relaxed rhombohedral phase for a given thickness.
