Paper Title:
Effects of Rare Earth Gd Doping on Ferroelectric Properties of PbZr0.52Ti0.48O3 Thin Films Prepared by Sol–Gel Methods
  Abstract

The Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 thin films with 0-2at.%Gd dopants (denoted as PGZT) were prepared on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates by a sol-gel technique and a rapid thermal annealing process. The structures of PGZT films were characterized and the ferroelectric properties such as P–V loop, C–V and I–V characteristics were investigated. Improved polarization (2Pr = 46.373 μC/cm2) and the low leakage current (J = 1.5×10-9 A/cm2 at the electric field of 400 kV/cm) were obtained in the PZT thin film with 1at.% Gd dopant, which was better than that of the pure PZT thin film (2Pr = 39.099 μC/cm2, J = 4.3×10-8A/cm2). With the Gd contents up to 2at.%, a decreased remanent polarization was found.
