|摘要:||We have used a sol-gel spin-coating process to fabricate a new metal-insulator-metal capacitor comprising 10-nm thick binary hafnium-zirconium-oxide (Hf(x)Zr(1-x)O(2)) film on a flexible polyimide (PI) substrate. The surface morphology of this Hf(x)Zr(1-x)O(2) film was investigated using atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, which confirmed that continuous and crack-free film growth had occurred on the PI. After oxygen plasma pre-treatment and subsequent annealing at 250 degrees C, the film on the PI substrate exhibited a low leakage current density of 3.22 x 10(-8) A/cm(2) at -10 V and maximum capacitance densities of 10.36 fF/mu m(2) at 10 kHz and 9.42 fF/mu m(2) at 1 MHz. The as-deposited sol-gel film was oxidized when employing oxygen plasma at a relatively low temperature (similar to 250 degrees C), thereby enhancing the electrical performance.
