We have grown Li-doped ZnO films on silicon (100) using the rf planar magnetron sputtering method. The surface charges induced piezoelectrically by defect and by polarization can be observed by electric force microscopy. The Li-doped ZnO films have been proven to be ferroelectric. The Raman spectra of ZnO and Li-doped ZnO films have been measured.
