■Research Interests

Fabrication of integrated ferroelectric memory on Si substrate
Ferroelectric memory to use remanent polarization of a ferroelectric film has the feature points of high switching speed, nonvolatility, radiation tolerance and high density. So, this is expected as an ultimate memory. In our research, we deposit a PZT(Pb(Zr,Ti)O3) film on an Si substrate and fabricate an integrated memory device which operates with our original principle.

Fabrication of low temperature poly-crystalline Si film with controlled grain boundary location by a pulse laser beam on a glass substrate
We fabricate a low-temperature poly Si film on an amorphous or glass substrate by melting-crystallization of a deposited Si film using a pulse laser. In our research, we control, using our original method, the location of grain boundary which reduces carrier mobility in devices. Final our target is to obtain an Si film with single crystalline quality on a glass substrate and to apply it to Thin Film Transistor (TFT).

Low temperature formation of a crystallized Si film on a glass substrate by using a seed or template layer
Fabrication of a good quality crystallized Si film on a glass or plastic substrate at low temperature leads to creation of a new device. In our research, by means of the low temperature formation of a seed or template layer on the glass substrate before depositing Si film, we try to obtain a low temperature crystallized Si film on the glass substrate.

Low temperature Si oxide film formation with ozone gas and silicone oil
We found out low temperature fabrication method of Si oxidation by using 1 % ozone gas and silicone oil. By this new method, we can obtain a high growth rate of Si dioxide film, about 60 nm/60 min, at low temperature of 200C. Generally, in order to get Si oxide film at low temperature, plasma is used. However, it produces plasma-damage in the film. By our method, without plasma-damage, it is possible to get a high qulaity SiO2 film at low temperature.
