High-performance films (400-1600 angstrom) were formed by anodizing sputtered tantalum oxide films. The electrical properties of these two-step oxidized and sputtered/anodized films are compared with those of films prepared by anodization or sputtering only. The sputtered/anodized tantalum oxide capacitors have lower dissipation factors, higher breakdown fields, narrower breakdown distributions, and lower leakage currents. The sputtered/anodized tantalum oxide films have shown to be useful for high-charge-storage capacitor applications.
