Crack and void free polycrystalline PZT films in the range of 2 µm to 6 µm have been successfully deposited on silicon wafers using a novel high rate gas flow sputtering process. The development of a process for uniform deposition of high quality piezoelectric materials on wafer scale will drastically lower the costs of actuator integration into new MEMS devices. The sputtered PZT layers show a high dielectric constant Er of 2000 and a distinct ferroelectric hysteresis loop with a remnant polarisation of 17 µC/cm2 and a coercive field strength of 5.4 kV/mm. Piezoelectric coefficients d33,f of 102 to 108pm/V have been determined using a standard aixACCT. A transverse piezoelectric module e31 = -10.9 C/m2 was measured.
