The ZnO film, whose crystallites c-axis align parallel to the substrate plane [(112̄0) textured ZnO films], has many potential advantages as shear-mode piezoelectric devices. In this study, shear mode electromechanical coupling coefficient k15 of (112̄0) textured polycrystalline ZnO films was estimated. An over-moded resonator consists of metal electrode film / (112̄0) textured ZnO piezoelectric film / metal electrode film / silica glass substrate was used to characterize k15 by a resonant spectrum method. For example, the (1120) textured ZnO piezoelectric films with good crystallite alignment show an electromechanical coupling coefficient k 15 of 0.24 which is 92% of the value of single-crystalline (k 15 = 0.26).
