Pure $BiFeO_3$ (BFO) and codoped $Bi_{0.9}A_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}Zn_{0.025}O_{3-{\delta}}$ (A=Eu, Dy) thin films were prepared on Pt(111)/Ti/$SiO_2$/Si(100) substrates by chemical solution deposition. The remnant polarizations (2Pr) of the $Bi_{0.9}Eu_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}Zn_{0.025}O_{3-{\delta}}$ (BEFZO) and $Bi_{0.9}Dy_{0.1}Fe_{0.975}Zn_{0.025}O_{3-{\delta}}$ (BDFZO) thin films were about 36 and $26{\mu}C/cm^2$ at the maximum electric fields of 900 and 917 kV/cm, respectively, at 1 kHz. The codoped BEFZO and BDFZO thin films showed improved electrical properties, and leakage current densities of 3.68 and $1.21{\times}10^{-6}A/cm^2$, respectively, which were three orders of magnitude lower than that of the pure BFO film, at 100 kV/cm.
