We report on preparation and electrical characterization of the epitaxial BaTiO3 (BTO), BiFeO3 (BFO) thin films and BFO/BTO bi- and multilayers, grown on (001) SrTiO3 (STO) and (LaAlO3)0.3(Sr2TaAlO6)0.7 (LSAT) substrates. The ferroelectric properties were characterized using the electric force microscopy method to image and switch the electric domains. This fabrication process opens the routes towards wide study of magnetoelectric effect in complex oxide heterostructures.
