Abstract

In this paper, the ferroelectric polarization effect of ZrO capping layer on HfO MFM capacitor was investigated. Based on crystallinity analysis, the phase transformation from monoclinic to orthorhombic phase in HfO film can be induced by a thin ZrO capping layer. The thickness of ZrO capping layer plays an important role in the ferroelectric polarization of HfO MFM capacitor. Compared to mixed HfZrO film, the stacked ZrO/HfO film shows the advantage for suppressing the leakage issue during hightemperature ferroelectric phase transition.
