Heterojunctions composed of wurtzite-structure (piezoelectric) ZnO and perovskite-structure (ferroelectric) BaTiO3 are very interesting because of the coupling effects between the non-switchable ionic charge of wurtzite-structure and electrically switchable lattice charge of pervoskite structure at their common interface. In this paper we report the variations in the overall electrical properties of the ZnO-BaTiO3 heterostructure as a function of different physical attributes by using our previously reported physical model approach. This numerical model analysis helps us to prepare the samples by using pulsed laser deposition with specific electrical properties. This study is also useful for the future device applications.
