Epitaxial SBN:61 films have been grown on SBN:75 and MgO substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The optical loss due to absorption is greatly reduced by increasing the oxygen pressure to 1 mbar during the cooling process. In homoepitaxy, X-ray phi scans on the (221) plane of the SBN:61 films indicate that the in-plane grains are rotated 0° or ±28° with respect to single crystalline SBN:75 substrates. Cross-section and plane view high resolution TEM reveals this crystalline relations and microstructure of SBN thin films. Pr doped SBN:61 thin films show sharp transition band at 495 nm and 607 nm in room temperature photoluminescence measurement.
