Ferroelectric Thin Films and Their Applications

  • R. R. Neurgaonkar (a1), J. R. Oliver (a1), J. G. Nelson (a1) and I. S. Santha (a1)


Ferroelectric morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) materials based on Pb2+ - containing compositions are potentially important for optical and electronic applications because they exhibit high switchable polarization near this boundary with superior electro-optic and piezoelectric properties. In this paper we discuss these MPB materials, substrate issues, and the growth of MPB film compositions based on the PZT and PSKNN systems.
