Lead zirconium titanate is an inorganic compound. It is a ceramic perovskite material that shows a marked piezoelectric effect, meaning that the compound changes shape when an electric field is applied. Lead zirconium titanate is used in a number of practical applications such as ultrasonic transducers and piezoelectric resonators.
Lead zirconium titanate was first developed around 1952 at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. It is composed of the elements lead and zirconium combined with the chemical compound titanate and was formed under extremely high temperatures. It is a white solid that is insoluble in all solvents. Lead zirconium titanate exhibit great sensitivity and have a high operating temperature. Due to its physical strength, chemical inertness, tailorability, and relatively inexpensive manufacture costs, it is one of the most commonly used piezo ceramics used in the industry.
Lead zirconium titanate is known has the highest dielectric constant among advanced ceramic material . This is due to its perovskite structure that exists in high orientation of lead zirconium titanate resulted to dielectric constant which is looking forward to improve the storage capability of capacitor. Instead of being a ferroelectric material provided by its perovskite structure, lead zirconium titanate also has large band gap which make it suitable as semiconductor material as well.
preparation of PZT thin film were soon discovered by many techniques such as
sol-gel process , pulse laser deposition, radio frequency (RF) magnetron
sputter, and metal organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD)would also may
affect the performance of electrical and structural properties thin films. In
addition, RF magnetron sputter is considered as reliable method compared to
other because it produce uniformity and smooth surface of thin film. To reach
