A hydrothermal method was used to study the ferroelectric properties of an epitaxial lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thin film deposited. The PZT thin film was directly synthesized from an ionic reaction in solution. The superior properties of PZT films obtained using the hydrothermal method were its large thickness, its three-dimensional structure and its self-alignment with the polings. The remanent polarization 2Pr and coercive electric field were found to be 38.4 μC/cm2 and 21.8 kV/cm.
