Illustration of a new high-temperature hard-mask process based on traditional lithography and selective wet-etching of MgO. The hard mask is compatible with standard nano-lithography techniques and heat treatments in excess of 1000 °C. Here, this technique is applied to produce temperature-stable contacts that give rise to low leakage, improved fatigue properties, and excellent high-temperature stability in ferroelectric thin-film capacitors.
