|Abstract:||The characteristics of CoTiO(3) high-k dielectric prepared by sol-gel spin coating method had been demonstrated. High electrical permittivity (k similar to 40.2) of CoTiO(3) dielectric was extracted via the transmission electron microscopy image and capacitance-voltage curves. In addition, the valence band offset between thermal SiO(2) and spin-on CoTiO(3) was about 4.0 eV, which was detected by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The band gaps of thermal SiO(2) and spin-on CoTiO(3) were 9.0 and 2.2 eV, respectively. Energy band alignment of spin-on CoTiO(3) directly with SiO(2) and indirectly with Si was determined in this work. (c) 2008 American Institute of Physics.|
