Phase Transformation Behavior of ZrO2-TiO2 Thin Films in Electric Field


Article Preview

ZrO2-TiO2 thin films, which were heat-treated with an applied electric field, were prepared by sol-gel method. The phase transformation behavior of ZrO2-TiO2 composite thin films was studied by DTA, XRD, SEM and Raman spectroscopy. In an electric field, the phase transformation temperature of amorphous phase to anatase and that of anatase to rutile are all decreased.
