Abstract

The effect of thin Ti/PbZr0.4Ti0.6O3 seed layers on the properties of PbZr0.4Ti0.6O3 (PZT) capacitors has been investigated. The seed layer is based on a bi-layer of thin Ti and thin PZT with a total thickness ranging from 10 to 25 nm, which was deposited on Ir/Pt or Ir/IrO2/Pt by sputtering. After crystallization of the seed layers the main 130-nm-thick PZT film was deposited and crystallized. As a result, a highly preferred (111)-orientation of the PZT was obtained on a 10-nm-thick seed layer, where the peak intensity ratios of (111)/{100} and (111)/{110} are about 100 and 20, respectively. The 10-nm-thick seed forms a pyrochlore phase with a very smooth surface, where the formation of the pyrochlore phase is attributed to Pb diffusion, resulting in a Pb deficient stoichiometry. The seed layer transformed to the perovskite phase during the main PZT crystallization. It is shown that an IrO2 layer beneath the Pt can prevent Pt layer degradation related to the volume expansion due to the oxidation of Ir during the main PZT crystallization. Capacitors with the 10-nm-thick seed layer fabricated on the Ir/Pt and Ir/IrO2/Pt substrates showed typical 2 Pr values of 44.0 μC/cm2 and 41.2 μC/cm2, respectively. The voltage found for 90%-polarization saturation is about 3.0 V, and the capacitors are fatigue-free at least up to 1010 switching cycles.
