We have studied pyroelectric and ferroelectric properties of Pb(Zr,Ti)O3thin filmsgrown epitaxially on SrTiO3(001) substrates by rf magnetron sputtering. The pyroelectric coefficient was measured in the temperature range from 280 to 370 K using the Byer–Roundy method. Values as high as 48 nC/cm2 K have been obtained at 300 K. The PZTthin films exhibited a remanent polarization of 45–58 μC/cm2. The improved pyroelectric coefficient was attributed to a high crystalline quality of the films, as revealed by x-ray diffraction that showed only (001)-oriented perovskitePZT phase and a ω-rocking curve full width at half maximum value as low as 4.2 arc min for 300 nm thick films.
