Ferroelectric (FE) films especially PZT films, have received increasing attention for microelectric applications such as ferroelectric memory and high density DRAM. There has been significant progress in the preparation of high quality PZT films involving wet chemical land physical vapor deposition techniques. Metal-FE-metal structures, typified by Pt-PZT-Pt capacitors, are the basic building blocks for the ferroelectric devices. The leakage currents of the capacitors are known to be non-ohmic and exhibit an exponential dependence on applied voltage.
