We report a solution-based fabrication of perovskite multilayers and superlattices using perovskite nanosheets. Perovskite nanosheets (LaNb 2O7, Ca2Nb3O10, and Sr2Nb3O10) were prepared by delaminating layered perovskites. A layer-by-layer approach using Langmuir-Blodgett deposition was effective for fabricating high-quality nanofilms of perovskite nanosheets on various substrates, such as quartz glass, Si, and SrRuO 3. Structural characterizations by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy revealed that these perovskite nanofilms are composed of a well-ordered lamellar structure with an atomically sharp interface. The multilayer films exhibited a stable dielectric response inherent to the perovskite nanosheet. We also found that the superlattices of (LaNb2O7/Ca2Nb 3O10)5 and (Sr2Nb3O 10/Ca2Nb3O10)5 possess strong interface coupling, which gives rise to enhanced dielectric constant.
