In this work, we investigated the ferroelectric properties of Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 (HZO) Metal-Ferroelectric-Metal (MFM) capacitors on various refractory electrodes, including TiN, TaN, W, and Mo. By comparing different electrodes and annealing temperature, we found that the MFM capacitors with TiN and W electrodes showed both higher remanent polarization (2Pr) and lower leakage current for post-metal annealing (PMA) temperatures ranging from 400 °C to 600 °C. Moreover, the MFM capacitor with W electrode showed better saturated polarization-voltage (P-V) curve and less "wake up effect"during the polarization switching cycles, while the MFM capacitor with TiN electrode showed the lowest leakage current. The correlation of crystallization quality studied by X-ray diffraction and the ferroelectric characteristics for each type of MFM capacitors were also presented and compared in this study.
