We performed optical analysis of bismuth niobate thin films using spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE). The films were grown on Pt/Ti/SiO 2/Si substrates with pulsed laser deposition. Six films were prepared using various deposition temperatures and thermal-annealing times. The room-temperature SE spectra of these films were measured by a rotating-analyzer ellipsometer from 1.12 to 6.52 eV at incidence angles of 50, 55, 60, 65, and 70°. The resulting refractive indices and extinction coefficients show significant changes with deposition temperature and thermal annealing.
