Single phase, epitaxial, 〈001〉 oriented, undoped and 1 mol % Mn-doped (K0.44,Na0.52,Li0.04) × (Nb 0.84,Ta0.10,Sb0.06)O3 thin films of 400 nm thickness were synthesized on SrRuO3 coated SrTi O3. Such films exhibit well saturated hysteresis loops and have a spontaneous polarization (Ps) of 10 μC cm2, which is a 150% higher over the Ps of the undoped composition. The coercive field of 1 mol % Mn doped films is 13 kVcm. Mn-doping results in three orders of magnitude decrease in leakage current above 50 kVcm electric field, which we attribute to the suppression of intrinsic p -type conductivity of undoped films by Mn donors.
