A one-mask-patterned ferroelectric capacitor memory cell structures designed with a 0.5-μm feature size were fabricated. Oxygen plasma treatment after dry etching decreased the leakage current to as low as as-deposited film. The one-mask-patterned ferroelectric capacitors with switching charge almost equal to as-deposited film were achieved. Ferroelectric memories as dense as dynamic random access memories will become possible with this technology.
