ABSTRACT
The Curie–Weiss plots of reciprocal dielectric constant versus temperature, in Ba[sub 0.5]Sr[sub 0.5]TiO[sub 3] films grown onto SrRuO[sub 3] lower electrodes by pulsed-laser deposition, show two minima below film thicknesses of 280 nm. This double minima implies possible mixed phases in the thin films. A graphical plot of capacitance for decreasing dc voltage versus that of increasing dc voltage shows a well-defined triangular shape for both Pb(Zr[sub 0.4]Ti[sub 0.6])O[sub 3] and SrBi[sub 2]Ta[sub 2]O[sub 9] thin films. However, for a 175-nm-thick Ba[sub 0.5]Sr[sub 0.5]TiO[sub 3] thin film, the plot shows an overlapping of two triangles, suggesting mixed phases. This graphical method appears to be effective in detecting structural subtleties in ferroelectric capacitors. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
