Abstract

We compared the ionic properties of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) thin films prepared by atomic layer deposition (ALD) using various oxidants including water, oxygen, and ozone. Cross-plane conductivity measurements were performed at low temperature (50 °C) and high temperature (450 °C) using AC impedance spectroscopy. As a result, we have confirmed that the conductivity of ALD YSZ films below 300 °C is greater by several orders of magnitude compared to the nano-scale YSZ thin films synthesized by other conventional techniques. Among the ALD YSZ samples, ALD YSZ fabricated using water showed the highest conductivity while ALD YSZ fabricated using ozone showed the lowest. We have analyzed this result in relation with grain morphology characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), and the chemical binding states measured by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS).
