Title: Microstructure of epitaxial ferroelectric/metal oxide electrode thin film heterostructures on LaAlO{sub 3} and silicon

Abstract

TEM and X-ray diffraction studies of PZT, PLZT, lead titanate and bismuth titanate ferroelectric thin films and YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7{minus}x}(YBCO), Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 8}(BSCCO) and La{sub 0.5}Sr{sub 0.5}CoO{sub 3}(LSCO) electrically conductive oxide thin films, that are sequentially deposited by pulsed laser ablation, show that these films may be deposited epitaxially onto LaAlO{sub 3}(LAO) or Si substrates. The conductive oxides are promising candidates for use is electrodes in place of metal electrodes in integrated ferroelectric device applications. The oxide electrodes are more chemically compatible with the ferroelectric films. High resolution electron microscopy his been used to investigate the interface between the ferroelectric and metal oxide thin films and no reaction was detected. Epitaxial growth is possible due to the similar crystal structures and the small lattice mismatch. The lattice mismatch that is present causes the domains in the ferroelectric films to be preferentially oriented and in the case of lead titanate, the film is single domain. These films may also have potential applications in integrated optical devices.
