Abstract:

Ferroelectric thin films of BaTiO3 and lead zirconate titanate, PbZro.53Tio.4703 PZT, have been prepared by pulsed excimer laser deposition. The microstructure and crystallography of these films have been studied by scanning electron microscopy SEM, energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry EDX, transmission electron microscopy TEM, xray diffraction XRD, and differential scanning calorimetry DSC. Electrical properties, including remanent polarization, dielectric loss, and dielectric constant, have been measured. Also, switched remanent polarization has been measured under conditions of continuous cycling.
