Influence of LaNiO3 as an Electrode on the Properties of Ferroelectric Oxides

  • R. Kalare (a1), M. Vedawyas (a1) and A. Kumar (a2)

An electrode plays an important role in realising a ferroelectric thin film as a potential memory device. We have investigated LaNiO3 (LNO) as a potential electrode material and evaluated the ferroelectric properties of oxide materials like strontium bismuth tantalate (SBT) and barium titanate(BT). We have successfully deposited epitaxial films of LNO on Pt coated Si(100) and LaAlO3 (LAO) substrates using the pulsed excimer laser deposition technique. We are able to grow high quality SBT and BT films on top of this LNO layer. The X-ray diffraction revealed the epitaxy of the LNO, SBT and BT films. The ferroelectric properties of SBTand BT were investigated using the RT66A ferroelectric tester.
