Abstract
YMnO3 thin films deposited on Si (1 0 0) substrate by rf-sputteringwere annealed with various conditions. YMnO3 films annealed in a furnace had a c-axis preferred orientation and the films annealed in a rapid thermal processor (RTP) had random orientations. However, cracks were observed in the highly c-axis oriented YMnO3 films. YMnO3 films annealed in the furnace showed poor ferroelectric characteristics. However, YMnO3 films annealed in the RTP showed a ferroelectric C2V hysteresis with 1.5V memory window at 0.2 V/s sweep rate. Since the thermal expansion of a-axis is five times higher than that of c-axis in the YMnO3 thin films, the c-axis oriented thin films are expected to be easily cracked duringthe post-annealingprocess. Moreover, the rapid thermal annealingprocess effectively suppressed the increase of a native SiO2 thickness in the YMnO3/Si structure. r 2001 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
