Abstract

In this work, we comprehensively investigated the metal-electrode stress engineering on HfAlO metal-ferroelectric-metal capacitor. According to experimental results, we confirm that high-nitrogen tantalum-nitride electrode with good chemical stability not only mitigates the anti-ferroelectric property and gate leakage current, but also improves the wake-up effect and endurance cycling characteristics, which shows the great potential for future applications of low-power ferroelectric memories.
