Title: Vacancy related defects in thin film Pb(ZrTi)O{sub 3} materials

Abstract

Positron annihilation techniques have been applied to characterize vacancy-related defects in ferroelectric thin film structures. Variable energy positron beam measurements were carried out on doped and undoped Pb(ZrTi)O{sub 3} (PZT) samples subjected to different post-deposition cool down and anneal conditions. The PZT was deposited by sol-gel with either with platinum or RuO{sub 2} electrodes, or by laser ablation with La{sub 0.5}Sr{sub 0.5}CoO{sub 3} electrodes. The RuO{sub 2} and La{sub 0.5}Sr{sub 0.5}CoO{sub 3} electrode samples showed a smaller S-parameter compared to those deposited with Pt electrodes consistent with an improved PZT layer quality. For laser ablated samples cooled in a reducing ambient an increase in S-parameter for both the PZT and La{sub 0.5}Sr{sub 0.5}CoO{sub 3} layers was observed indicating an increase in neutral or negatively charged open-volume defects.
