Abstract

In the vast application fields of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thin films, of particular interest are the interaction effects occurring at the ferroelectric-substrate interface [E. Bruno, M.P. De Santo, M. Castriota, S. Marino, G. Strangi, E. Cazzanelli and N. Scaramuzza, J. Appl. Phys. 103 (2008) p.064103; S. Dunn and R.W. Whatmore, J. Eur. Ceram. Soc. 22 (2002) p.825]. Relevant for this purpose are polarity-sensitive liquid crystals (LC) cells and micro- and nanoelectronic applications [S. Marino, M. Castriota, G. Strangi, E. Cazzanelli and N. Scaramuzza, J. Appl. Phys. 102, selected for Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science Technology, 30 July 2007 (2007) p.013002]. The polarisation current was investigated of a PZT film (PbZr0.47Ti0.53O3) obtained by sol-gel synthesis and deposited by spin coating on an indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode. The different behaviour exhibited by such a system when the support electrode was previously submitted to a thermal treatment was attributed to the change of the electrical properties of the ITO layer. In particular, a higher negative charge in the conductive band of the ITO electrode seems to be responsible for a higher order in the ferroelectric film.
