The current status of experimental point defect characterization of oxide thin films is briefly reviewed. The primary focus is on complex oxides, in particular perovskite oxide thin films. The evidence from different point defect sensitive characterization methods, such as electron paramagnetic resonance, positron annihilation spectroscopy, and optical spectroscopy is evaluated. Current and future challenges for point defect characterization of perovskite oxide films are detailed and suggestions for further work to aid the development of electronic grade complex oxide thin films are given.
