Abstract

We performed x-ray diffraction measurements by using highly brilliant synchrotron radiation on epitaxial Pb(Zr0.35Ti0.65)O3 film capacitor structures. Small regions of 300-nm-thick epitaxial Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 thin films with Pt and SrRuO3 top electrodes were measured after applying various numbers of switching cycles of the electric field. Epitaxial Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 thin films were prepared on epitaxial (100)cSrRuO3/(100)SrTiO3 substrates by pulsed-metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. The volume faction of c-domain and remanent polarization was plotted against the number of switching cycles. In the both capacitors, the Vc increased as the switching cycle increased independent of fatigue behavior.
