Lead zirconate titanate, Pb(ZrxTi1-x)O3 [PZT] rhombohedral thin films with  orientation were fabricated by sol-gel spin coating techniques. Using a methoxyethanol based precursor solution and rapid thermal annealing at 700°C for 30 seconds, crack free and homogeneous PZT thin films were successfully obtained. Preferred  oriented PZT thin films with x = 0.80 showed a remanent polarization of 28 μC/cm2 and a coercive field of 17 kV/cm.
