This short communication revealed the importance of Samarium, Sm as a dopant in Sodium Potassium Niobate, KNN thin films. It was found that the surface roughness of about 1.583nm was reduced with Sm doping. Furthermore, the microstructure of doping films was more uniform in term of size and shape. This also led to the improvement of dielectric properties.
