The influence of different work functions of metal electrodes on (Ba,Sr)TiO3 thin film capacitor was investigated. We fabricated BST film parallel plate capacitor with top electrodes of Pt, Au, Ag, and In. The apparent dielectric permittivity increased depending on the work function of the electrodes. We measured the complex impedance of the capacitors and separated the capacitance of the low permittivity layers from that of BST. We concluded that the scaling effect of the BST films is negligible, and the origin of the low permittivity layer is the internal bias electric field in the interface.

    The interdigital electrodes (IDEs) and parallel plate electrodes (PPEs) were prepared by photolithographic techniques and dc sputtering on rf magnetron sputtered lanthanum-modified lead titanate (PLT) films, respectively. The PLT films with IDEs and PPEs exhibit almost the same permittivity at 1...

    Dual in-plane-gate oxide-based thin-film transistors (TFTs) are self-assembled on SiO2-based solid-electrolytes by only one shadow mask. The unique feature of such TFTs is that indium-tin-oxide (ITO) channel and four ITO electrodes can be deposited simultaneously. Threshold voltage can be...
