Abstract: Sol-gel-derived niobium (Nb)-doped lead zirconate titanate (PZT) films have been deposited on silicon substrates with a lead titanate seeding layer by the multiple-spin-coating technique. The doping level of Nb ranges from 0 to 2 mol%. With the seeding layer, the PZT films can crystallize well into the perovskite phase at a low temperature of 550°C for 2 h. The films are dense and have good dielectric and piezoelectric properties. Effective longitudinal and transverse piezoelectric coefficients (d 33,c and e 31,c ) of the films have been measured. Our results reveal that the Nb dopant effects on the PZT films are very similar to the experimentally-known effects on the corresponding bulk ceramics, i.e. enhancing both the longitudinal and transverse piezoelectric properties. For the PZT film doped with 1 mol% Nb, the observed values of d 33,c and e 31,c are 74 pm/V and 12.8 C/m 2 , respectively.
