However, solution-processed metal oxide materials such as titanium oxide (Ti[O.sub.2]), zirconium oxide (Zr[O.sub.2]), hafnium oxide (Hf[O.sub.2]), aluminium oxide ([Al.sub.2][O.sub.3]), tantalum oxide ([Ta.sub.2][O.sub.5]), and their mixtures are tenable alternatives due to their demonstrated uniformity over a large area and a suitable dielectric constant [1,2].
There has been a growing interest in zirconium oxide (Zr[O.sub.2]), commonly known as zirconia, motivated by its good catalytic properties and wide range of applications, acting either as a matrix support or as a catalyst [1].
