ABSTRACT
Barium strontium titanate thin films were deposited by sputtering on Pt/SiO[sub 2] structures using five different host substrates: magnesium oxide, strontium titanate, sapphire, silicon, and vycor glass. These substrates were chosen to provide a systematic change in thermal strain while maintaining the same film microstructure. All films have a weakly textured microstructure. Temperature dependent dielectric measurements from 100-500 K determined that decreasing thermal expansion coefficient of the host substrate (i.e., larger tensile thermal strain) reduced the film dielectric permittivity. The experimentally determined Curie-Weiss temperature decreased with increasing tensile thermal strain and the Curie-Weiss constant increased with tensile strain as predicted by Pertsev et al.
