In this letter, we report on the integration of epitaxial ferroelectric Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 (PZT) thin films on Si  substrates using a SrTiO3 (STO) template layer and a conducting perovskite (La 0.5Sr0.5)CoO3 electrode. X-ray diffraction studies reveal both in-plane and out-of-plane alignment of the heterostructure. The epitaxial films show extremely high remnant polarization as well as piezoelectric d33 coefficients compared to textured and untextured polycrystalline films. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
