Evolution of electronic devices towards higher performance and smaller size requires the passive components to be embedded within a printed wire board (PWB). A “film-on-foil” approach is the most viable fabrication method. A high permittivity of lead lanthanum zirconate titanate (PLZT) thin film was coated on nickel foil by chemical solution deposition. Such a prefabricated capacitor sheet can be embedded into a PWB. However, formation of a parasitic low-permittivity interfacial layer of nickel oxide during thermal processing of the PLZT films considerably reduces the capacitance density. To eliminate this parasitic effect, conductive buffer layer of lanthanum nickel oxide (LNO) was coated by chemical solution deposition on nickel foil. We produced PLZT film-on-foil capacitors with capacitance densities as high as 1.5 μF/cm2 and breakdown field strength >1.4 MV/cm. With the desirable volumetric character, PLZT film-on-foil capacitors hold particular promise for use in high voltage embedded passives.
