Pb(Zr0.53Ti0.47)O3 (PZT) thin films were prepared on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si substrate by sol–gel method. The effect of annealing temperature on microstructure, ferroelectric and dielectric properties of PZT films was investigated. When the films were annealed at 550–850 °C, the single-phase PZT films were obtained. PZT films annealed at 650–750 °C had better dielectric and ferroelectric properties. The sandwich composites with epoxy resin/PZT film with substrate/epoxy resin were prepared. The annealing temperature of PZT films influenced their damping properties, and the epoxy-based composites embedded with PZT film annealed at 700 °C had the largest damping loss factor of 0.923.
