ABSTRACT
The structural and electrical properties of metalorganic chemical vapor deposition-grown Pb(Zr[SUB 0.35]Ti[SUB 0.65])O[SUB 3] thin films ranging in thickness from 700 to 4000 Ã… have been investigated. Cross-sectional scanning electron microscopy showed that these films are columnar, with grains extending through the thickness of the film. High-resolution x-ray diffraction showed that while the thickest films are tetragonal, with reflections corresponding to a-type and c-type domains, films thinner than 1500 Ã… are not. Electron backscatter diffraction and hysteresis loop measurements showed that the thinnest films are ferroelectric and have a rhombohedral crystal structure.
