The problem concerning the diagnostics of the phase composition of lead-zirconate-titanate (PZT) films under conditions of overlapping Raman spectra is solved via applied mathematical statistics. The proposed phase-identification method based on reference spectra is implemented using different Raman-spectrum regions measured on the surface of multiphase PZT films. It is demonstrated that the identification of phases, as well as determination of their concentration, must be performed using the spectral range in which the calculated first principal components of the set of Raman spectra differ to the greatest extent from each other.
