ABSTRACT
Thin film materials with a giant dielectric permittivity [variant_greek_epsilon][sub r][sup ′]≈10 000 and an electromechanical strain of Δh/h≈8% are produced by pulsed-laser deposition. Composite targets containing various different oxides such as BaTiO[sub 3], BaO[sub 2], BaCO[sub 3], and TiO[sub 2] powder embedded in the polymer polytetrafluoroethylen (PTFE) are employed for laser ablation. The dielectric permittivities of the films show strong relaxation at frequencies above 10 kHz, a pronounced dependence on layer thickness, and a frequency-dependent activation at lower temperatures. Composite targets as well as films produced from BaF[sub 2]/PTFE targets show only low permittivities with [variant_greek_epsilon][sub r][sup ′]<20 and do not reveal such phenomena. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
