The various structures of ferroelectric tunnel junctions (FTJs) are widely studied. Among them, metal-ferroelectric-semiconductor (MFS) FTJs show great tunneling electroresistance (TER) ratio by forming a depletion region. However, the poor ferroelectricity of hafnia on semiconductor electrodes degrades the TER ratio. This study employed high-pressure annealing with forming gas to improve the ferroelectric properties of MFS FTJs. We achieved a high 2Pr value (47.54 mu c/cm(2)) and large TER ratio (22) in MFS FTJ for a 6 nmthick hafnia layer annealed at high pressure (200 atm) with forming gas. This work helps improve the quality of interface between a semiconductor and ferroelectric layer to increase the ferroelectricity of MFS stack devices.
