Abstract

In this paper, we report our experimental results of lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thick-films prepared from the sol-gel derived nanocomposites. Transparent Pb-Zr-Ti-B-Si gels were synthesized from various metal organic precursors. PZT grains with the size of one hundred nanometers were homogeneously grown from the gels in the annealing process. Then PZT thick-films were prepared using the gel-derived glass-ceramic powders with average particle size below 300 nm. Surficial morphology, dielectric and ferroelectric properties of the films were studied. The characteristics of such films are attributed to the nano-sized composite structure of the gel-derived PZT glass-ceramic precursors.
