Ferroelectric Characteristics of SrxBi2.4Ta2O9 Thin Films and Electrical Properties of the Pt/SrxBi2.4Ta2O9/TiO2/Si Structure
Ferroelectric characteristics of the 400 nm-thick SrxBi2.4Ta2O9(0.7≤x≤1.3) thin films processed by metalorganic decomposition were investigated, and electrical properties of the Pt/Sr0.85Bi2.4Ta2O9/TiO2/Si structure prepared using TiO2 buffer layer were characterized. The Sr-deficient SrxBi2.4Ta2O9 films exhibited well-developed ferroelectric hysteresis curves compared to those of the Sr-excess films. The Sr0.85Bi2.4Ta2O9 film exhibited optimum ferroelectric properties, such as high remanent polarization and low leakage current density, among SrxBi2.4Ta2O9 films. A memory window of the Pt/SrxBi2.4Ta2O9/TiO2/Si structure was dependent upon the coercive field of the SrxBi2.4Ta2O9 film, and the Pt/SrxBi2.4Ta2O9/TiO2/Si exhibited a maximum memory window of 1.3 V at the sweeping voltage of ±5 V.
