Pb(Zr0.4Ti0.6)O3 thin films with a thickness of 500 nm were spin coated on (110) preferred Pt bottom electrodes using a sol-gel method, in which the (110) preferred Pt bottom electrode was developed by using a (100)-oriented conductive oxide electrode LaNiO3 film as an adhesion layer on a SiO2/Si substrate. X-ray diffraction analysis and field emission scanning electron microscopy show that the as-grown Pb(Zr0.4Ti0.6)O3 films are highly (110)-oriented with a columnar structure. It indicates that the (110) preferred Pt bottom electrode is effective for growing highly (110)-oriented Pb(Zr0.4Ti0.6)O3 films. The as-grown Pb(Zr0.4Ti0.6)O3 films show excellent dielectric and ferroelectric properties with dielectric constant ε33T/ε0=1620, loss tangent tan δ=2.1%, spontaneous polarization 2Ps=158 μC/cm2, and remnant polarization 2Pr=92 μC/cm2. Excellent pyroelectric properties are also detected in the (110)-oriented films. At room temperature, the pyroelectric coefficient and the figure of merit for detectivity can reach up to 7.8×10-4 C m-2 K-1 and 1.79×10-5 Pa-0.5, respectively.
