Specific features of the ferroelectric state in two-layer barium strontium titanate-based heterostructures
The structural properties of one- and two-layer heterostructures based on the barium-strontium titanate of various compositions deposited by the Frank-Van der Merve on a magnesium oxide substrate have been studied. The heterostructures have been prepared by the rf sputtering of the stoichiometric ceramic targets in a Plazma 50 SE deposition system. The principal difference of this method of deposition from known analogs is that the growth of single-crystal films occurs from a disperse oxide phase formed in the plasma of a high-current rf discharge during the ceramic target sputtering at the cluster level. The peculiarities of the manifestation of the ferroelectric state in the two-layer heterostructures when changing the sequence order of the films with various compositions of barium-strontium titanate.
