MgO thin films were deposited on Si(100) substrate with different temperatures from 500 °C to 800 °C and different e-beam powers from 25W to 100W using e-beam evaporation method. Pb(Zr0.53Ti0.47)O3(PZT) thin films were deposited on MgO/Si(100) substrates with different drying temperatures from 190 °C to 310 °C using sol-gel technique. If there were no buffer layer between the PZT thin film and Si substrate, the peaks corresponding to perovskite PZT phase were not observed. However the buffer layer were inserted between the PZT thin film and Si substrate, it was possible to fabricate perovskite PZT phase. The barrier effects of MgO thin film to the interdiffusion of Pb were investigated by AES study. Optimum thickness of MgO at which PZT/MgO/Si structure shows P-E hysteresis was calculated, and the hysteresis was tested for PZT/MgO/Si structures with different MgO thicknesses.
