We characterized the nonvolatile memory thin-film transistors, which was composed of an amorphous indium-gallium-zinc oxide -IGZO) active channel and a ferroelectric poly(vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene) [P(VDF-TrFE)] gate insulator, and investigated the impact of an interface controlling layer. Excellent device performances, such as the field-effect mobility of 60.9 cm2V-1s-1, the subthreshold swing of 120 mV/dec, and the memory window of 6.4 V at ±12 V programming, were confirmed for the device without any interface layer. However, the memory retention time was very short. The retention behaviors could be dramatically improved when 4 nm thick Al2O3 layer was introduced between the P(VDF-TrFE) and α-IGZO.
