Antiferroelectric lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thin films have been prepared by chemical solution deposition using oxide powders. The films were processed onto steel substrates coated with a conducting oxide layer of LaSrMnO[sub 3]. Homogeneous and uniform films up to 3.4 µm thick and with polarization saturation values up to 35 µC/cm² have been obtained. The compositional transition from the ferroelectric to the antiferroelectric phase at the high zirconium side of the PZT phase diagram was studied by x-ray diffraction and hysteresis loop measurements as a function of the Zr/Ti ratio. Film thickness and annealing temperature dependencies are reported. © 2001 American Institute of Physics. [DOI: 10.1063/1.1426695].
