In order to investigate band gap tunability in polar oxides, we measured the optical properties of a series of Bi(Fe1-xMnx)O3 thin films. The absorption response of the mixed metal solid solutions is approximately a linear combination of the characteristics of the two end members, a result that demonstrates straightforward band gap tunability in this system.

    The hydrogen annealing effect and the fatigue resistance of the Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 (PZT) thin films with double-side (Pb0.72La0.28)Ti0.93O3 (PLT) buffer layers were investigated. With the PLT buffer layers, the films showed better hydrogen resistance than the PZT films because of the enhancement...

    We investigated the flat band voltage (VFB) modulation by insertion of lanthanum oxide (La2O3) into hafnium oxide (HfO2) gate dielectrics. The properties of La2O3/HfO2 nanolaminates were precisely modulated by controlling the position of La2O3 layer at bottom, middle, or top using atomic layer...
