The applications of ferroelectric thin films such as the sensitivity of nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memories are closely linked with large remnant polarization. The high-TC (1-x)Bi(Zn1/2Zr 1/2)O3-xPbTiO3 (x = 0.7-0.9) thin films with high (100) orientation were fabricated on Pt(111)/Ti/SiO2/Si substrates via a sol-gel method. The thin films could be crystallized well in a phase-pure perovskite structure. The electrical properties of the sol-gel-derived BZZ-PT thin films were investigated. A large remanent polarization with 2Pr up to 110 μC cm-2 and a small leakage current of 3.8 × 10-7 A cm-2 under an electric field of 150 kV cm-1 are observed on the 0.2BZZ-0.8PT thin films. Furthermore, a relatively stable polarization fatigue property was achieved, indicating a potential application in high-temperature ferroelectric devices.
