The most common piezoelectric material is a ceramic crystal called lead zirconium titanate, or PZT.
Today, the most widely used piezoceramic is lead zirconium titanate (PZT).
Its principle applications are in the deposition of ferroelectric materials for FeRAM (strontium bismuth tantalate or SBT, bismuth lanthanum tantalate or BLT, and lead zirconium titanate or PZT) and high-k capacitor materials (hafnium silicate and barium strontium titanate or BST).
