We have evaluated the ferroelectric and electrical properties of pure $BiFeO_3$ (BFO) and $Bi_{0.9}A_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}V_{0.025}O_{3+{\alpha}}$ (A=Nd, Tb) thin films on $Pt(111)/Ti/SiO_2/Si(100)$ substrates by using a chemical solution deposition method. The remnant polarization ($2P_r$) of the $Bi_{0.9}Tb_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}V_{0.025}O_{3+{\alpha}}$ (BTFVO) thin film was approximately $65{\mu}C/cm^2$, with a maximum applied electric field of 950 kV/cm and a frequency of 10 kHz, where as that of the $Bi_{0.9}Nd_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}V_{0.025}O_{3+{\alpha}}$ (BNFVO) thin film was approximately $37{\mu}C/cm^2$ with a maximum applied electric field of 910 kV/cm. The leakage current density of the co-doped BNFVO thin film was four orders of magnitude lower than that of the pure BFO thin film, at $2.75{\times}10^{-7}A/cm^2$ with an applied electric field of 100 kV/cm. The grain size and uniformity of the co-doped BNFVO and BTFVO thin films were improved, in comparison to the pure BFO thin film, through structural modificationsdue to the co-doping with Nd and Tb.
