PZT (Zr/Ti = 53/47), PNZT (4% Nb doped PZT), PSZT (2% Sc doped PZT), and PSNZT (1% Sc and 1% Nb doped PZT) thin films were prepared by a sol-gel process. They were characterized by XRD, SEM and TEM. Both crystallographic orientation and grain size of PZT films can be changed by doping. Pt/PZT/Pt capacitors were fabricated for the measurement of ferroelectric properties. By doping with both Sc and Nb, the fatigue performance of the PZT films was considerably improved and the coercive field was decreased, while the remanent polarization was not changed. In addition, the effect of dopants on the leakage current level of PZT films was studied.
