This paper describes a micro cantilever integrated with a pyroelectric infrared detector for non-contact scanning thermal microscopy (SThM). Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 (PZT) was deposited on the cantilever tip with a sol-gel method as a pyroelectric sensor. An X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern of the deposited PZT film clearly indicated PZT (111) peak. A full width of half maximum intensity (FWHM) of 3.34° was achieved in the rocking curve of PZT (111) peak. The fabricated device was verified with a chopped infrared light. As a result, we succeeded to detect the switching of the thermal source with the cantilever experimentally.
