## Abstract

$Zn_{1-x}Mg_xO$ (x=0.3) thin films have been fabricated on $Pt/TiO_2 /SiO_2 /Si$ substrates using multimagnetron sputtering technique. The films with wurtzite structure showed a (002) preferred orientation. Ferroelectricity in $Zn_{1-x}Mg_xO$ films was established from the temperature dependent dielectric constant and the polarization hysteresis loop. The temperature dependent study of dielectric constant at different frequencies exhibited a dielectric anomaly at 110 °C. The resistivity versus temperature characteristics showed an anomalous increase in the vicinity of the dielectric transition temperature. The $Zn_{1-x}Mg_xO$ thin films exhibit well-defined polarization hysteresis loop, with a remanent polarization of $0.2\mu C/cm^2$ and coercive field of 8 kV/cm at room temperature.
