Calcium modified lead titanate thin films have been prepared from a sol-gel method. Different thermal conditions have been used for the crystallization of the as-deposited amorphous films. The influence of thermal treatment on the perovskite structure and strain of the films is studied by a grazing incidence X-ray diffraction technique (GIXRD). The ferroelectric response of the films is related to their crystalline structure and chemical composition.
