Paper Abstract

The perovskite Ba0.7Sr0.3TiO3 thin films were fabricated by a sol-gel method with two kinds of microstructures, which are characterized were by fluctuant and homogeneous distribution of Ba/Sr ratio in micro-region respectively. It is found that the films with compositional inhomogeneity have higher dielectric tunability than that of the films with compositional homogeneity, 32% and 13% respectively at the bias field of 100 kv/cm. From the TEM observation, we found the micro-domain clusters with domain- width of 2 - 5 nm. We proposed that the compositional heterogeneity of Ba and Sr in `A' sites of (Ba1-xSrx)TiO3 induces the lattice-metastability and promotes the sensitivity of phase transition to electric field, which gives rise to higher dielectric tunability.
