Abstract: The ferroelectric hysteresis response against periodically varying electric field over frequency range of 10-2-105 Hz and amplitude range of 2-45 kV/cm for YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO)/ Pb(Ti0.48Zr0.52)O3 (PZT)/YBCO thin film capacitors prepared by laser ablation is measured by utilizing the Sawyer-Tower circuit. Given amplitude Δ of the field, the hysteresis area 〈A〉 first grows and then decays as a function of frequency φ. At low and high ranges of frequency, 〈A〉 can be scaled as 〈A〉 o∝φ 1/3Δ2/3 and 〈A〉∝φ-1/3A, respectively. It is established that the dynamic hysteresis at the high frequency range for a PZT thin film capacitor does not follow the theoretically predicted scaling law. An empirical scaling law 〈A〉∝φ 1/3(Δ-Δ 0)2/3/(1+bφ2/3Δ-1/3) with Δ0 the critical field and b a constant, is proposed to characterize the frequency and amplitude dependence of the hysteresis area over all the frequency range. In addition, the remnant polarization Pr and coercive field Ec as functions of φ are investigated, respectively, revealing a single-peaked pattern of both Pr and Ec. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
