  • Room-temperature reversible remnant polarization of gallium ferrite thin-films is reported as a multiferroic material with non-zero order parameters of polarization and magnetization. With the addition of Fe ions in Ga sites, Ga{sub 0.6}Fe{sub 1.4}O{sub 3} (GFO) thin films have been considered as potentially promising of multiferroicity. The b-axis oriented epitaxial GFO films were grown on SrRuO{sub 3}(111)/SrTiO{sub 3}(111). The six-fold symmetric in-plane epitaxy of the GFO films was confirmed using X-ray diffraction. The magnetic moment of the films was measured as a function of temperature and external magnetic field, which shows a room-temperature non-zero magnetization. Macroscopic and microscopic methods havemore » been applied to demonstrate the polarization switching of the films. The remnant polarization is measured as 0.05 μC/cm{sup 2}. Reduction of leaky behaviors of the GFO films owing to the conducting oxide of SrRuO{sub 3} will pave a way to take advantage of the room-temperature non-zero multi-orders for future non-volatile memory device applications.« less

  • A domain model consistent with the measured capacitance{endash}voltage (CV) characteristics of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) capacitors is proposed. Two variants of this model are presented and compared with experimentally measured CV data. The basic model is developed adopting a macroscopic electric field that is spatially uniform through the depth of the film. Then, this model is generalized to allow a variation of the electric field with depth and to include a physically reasonable, position-dependent domain structure. Specifically, the spatial variation of the electric field is related to dopant{endash}ion charges. As a result of the interaction between the domain properties andmore » the electrical doping, a position dependent permittivity is induced, and the electrical properties of the capacitors are affected. Finally, computer simulations to fit the measured CV characteristics are performed to help understand the extent of the coupling between the domain properties and the electrical doping. It is found that there is a minimum doping level below which the doping does not affect the CV characteristic. A method for determining this minimum doping level from the CV curve is presented. The analysis of observed CV data demonstrates that niobium doping is responsible for partially compensating the p-type nature of PZT thin films. For the films measured here, the minimum noticeable doping level is about 10{sup 18}cm{sup {minus}3}. It is also found that niobium doping slows the growth rate of polarization as the electric field increases, and has a tendency to increase the coercive field. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}« less
