Functional ferroelectric oxides for flexible electronics are achieved from activated solutions enabling low-temperature processing and large-area deposition directly on polymeric substrates. This processing technology reaches the lower limit temperature of crystallization at 300 °C, using a strategy that combines seeded diphasic precursors and photochemical(More)
The photocatalytically assisted decomposition of liquid precursors of metal oxides incorporating TiO2 particles enables the preparation of functional layers from the ferroelectric Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 and multiferroic BiFeO3 perovskite systems at temperatures not exceeding 350 ºC. This enables direct deposition on flexible plastic, where the multifunctionality(More)
Functional oxide films were obtained at low temperature by combination of aqueous precursors and a UV-assisted annealing process (aqueous photochemical solution deposition). For a PbTiO(3) model system, functional ferroelectric perovskite films were prepared at only 400 °C, a temperature compatible with the current Si-technology demands. Intrinsically(More)
Applications of ferroelectric materials in modern microelectronics will be greatly encouraged if the thermal incompatibility between inorganic ferroelectrics and semiconductor devices is overcome. Here, solution-processable layers of the most commercial ferroelectric compound ─ morphotrophic phase boundary lead zirconate titanate, namely Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3(More)
The potential of UV-light for the photochemical synthesis and stabilization of non-equilibrium crystalline phases in thin films is demonstrated for the β-Bi2O3 polymorph. The pure β-Bi2O3 phase is thermodynamically stable at high temperature (450-667 °C), which limits its applications in devices. Here, a tailored UV-absorbing(More)

Over the last few years the efforts devoted to the research on low-temperature processing of metal oxide thin films have increased notably. This has enabled the direct integration of metal oxide layers (amorphous semiconductors) on low-melting-point polymeric substrates for flexible electronic systems, which adds to the economic and environmental benefits(More)
