Broadband dielectric and IR pyroelectric response of amorphous Y-Ba-Cu-O oxygen depleted thin films

Abstract

We report on the study of dielectric properties of amorphous semiconducting YBa2Cu3O6+x (x < 0.5, YBCO) thin films with two different thicknesses measured in a broad frequency range (from 40 Hz to 2 GHz) and in the 210 to 430 K temperature range, using a coaxial discontinuity technique. At all temperatures, dielectric permittivity and conductivity spectra exhibit typical features of dielectric relaxation processes. A first relaxation at low frequency (300 Hz - 2 kHz), observed only at high temperature, might be attributed to interfacial effects. Grain boundaries of the YBCO thin films could explain the second relaxation observed at higher frequency (800 Hz - 660 kHz). The higher relaxation frequencies increase with temperature and film thickness and follow a thermally activated behavior of the Arrhenius-type. Application to IR detection with a film deposited on silicon has been targeted: the observed pyroelectric behavior of the detector exhibits a fast response in the μs range.
