Ferroelectric Pb (Zrx Ti1-x)O3 (PZT) thin films were deposited on magnetostrictive nickel substrate and fused quartz using chemical solution deposition (CSD) technique. The remanent polarization and coercive field values were observed to be 50 µC/cm2 and 125 kV/cm at an applied field of 35 V. The dependence of remanent polarization under magnetic field showed a significant modulation of charge 12 µC/cm2 at 3.2 kOe for PZT film deposited on nickel. These results show great potential of implementing the PZT/Ni system for AC magnetic field sensors and dual phase energy harvesting devices. The PZT thin film on fused quartz substrate exhibited good transmittance (>85%) in the visible region and band gap of direct optical transition is found to be 4.1 eV.
