ABSTRACT
Polycrystalline Pb(Zr0.35Ti0.65)O3 [PZT] films were prepared at 540°C by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). Lower leakage and lower voltage-saturated 50-nm-thick PZT films were deposited on (111)Ir/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates than those on (111)Pt/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates. Moreover, low leakage current and good ferroelectricity were obtained for 35-nm-thick PZT films prepared on (111)Ir/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates by using source-gas-pulse-introduced MOCVD (pulsed-MOCVD) rather than conventional continuous gas supply MOCVD (continuous-MOCVD). As a result, 35-nm-thick PZT films with a Pr value of 47 μC/cm2 at a maximum applied voltage of 1.2 V were obtained on (111)Ir/TiO2/SiO2/Si substrates with pulsed-MOCVD. This opens the way for scaling down the film thickness of polycrystalline PZT films further while retaining good ferroelectricity.
