Tb-doped lead zirconate titanate(Pb(Zr$\_$0.6/,Ti$\_$0.4/)O$_3$; PZT) thin films on Pt(111)/Ti/SiO$_2$/Si(100) substrates were fabricated by the sol-gel method. The effect on the structural and electrical properties of films measured according to Tb content. The dielectric and ferroelectric properties of Tb-doped PZT thin films were altered significantly by Tb-doping. The PZT thin film with higher dielectric constant and improved leakage current characteristic was obtained by adding 0.3 mol% Tb. The relative dielectric constant and the dielectric loss of the 0.3 mol% Tb-doped PZT thin film were 1611 and 0.024, respectively. Typical value of the swichable remanent poaraization(2Pr) and the coercive filed of the PZT film capacitor for 0.3 mol% Tb-doped were 61.4 ${\mu}$C/cm$^2$ and 61.9 kV/cm, respectively. Tb-doped PZT thin films showed improved fatigue characteristics comparing to the undoped PZT thin film.
