The Pb-rich intermetallic phases, Pt5-7Pb and PbO, play an important role in the texture evolution of oriented PZT thin films. Pt5-7Pb is a (111) textured transient intermetallic phase that nucleates PZT[111] texture. PbO is a (001) textured layer compound that nucleates PZT[100] texture. Zr-rich PZT films with a [111] texture have better electrical properties than [100] textured films because of the polarization effect.
