PZT thin films of composition Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 were prepared by a novel method from the suspension of nanocrystalline PZT powders. The powders were obtained by mechanochemical synthesis. Films were deposited on silicon (1 0 0) and platinum covered silicon substrates (Pt (1 1 1) /Ti/SiO2/Si) using spin-on technique. Substrate type has influence on films crystallinity, orientation and can react with the films changing its phase composition. Films microstructure strongly depends on thermal treatment conditions due to phase and compositional changes of the films. (AU)
