The ferroelectric copolymer poly(vinylidene fluoride trifluoroethylene) (P(VDF-TrFE)) is a possible material for low cost applications as organic nonvolatile memory element. We present an XPS interface investigation of the copolymer/electrode interface. Below 100nm film thickness, interface phenomena becomes important. Possible interface reactions could lead to a reduction of the ferroelectric functionality.We present a comparative study of the two interfaces Al/P(VDF-TrFE) and PEDOT:PSS/P(VDF-TrFE). The result is a clear indication of a surface reaction in between the Aluminum-electrodes. In contrast, for PEDOT:PSS the measurements shows a layer by layer formation of the interface PEDOT:PSS/PVDF without any reaction. Second, we present a study of remanent polarization of ultrathin spincoated films of the copolymer, in a thickness range from 5 to 100mn, with organic electrodes like PEDOT:PSS. The measurements are carried out by using the flatband shift of a capacitance-voltage (CV) characteristic. This shift of flatband voltage is used as value for the electric polarization of the polymer.
