La0.67Sr0.33MnO3/BaTiO3(LSMO/BTO) bilayer films were epitaxially grown on Nb:SrTiO3 (NSTO) substrates by the pulsed laser deposition technique. Current–voltage (𝐼–𝑉) characteristics of the LSMO/BTO bilayer films were studied. 𝐼–𝑉 curves were measured at room temperature, which show rectifying behaviour and can be well fitted by the space-charge-limited current mechanism under forward bias while thermionic emission model under reverse bias. Analysis indicates that a modulating Schottky barrier exists at the LSMO/BTO interface, which dominates the leakage current transport properties of LSMO/BTO bilayer films.
