Barium strontium titanate (Ba1−xSrxTiO3, BST) films have been prepared on Pt/Ti/SiO2/Si by medium frequency (MF) magnetron sputtering, and subsequently in situ crystallized at 500-700°C. The microstructures of the MF-BST films are studied. BST films prepared by radio frequency (RF) magnetron sputtering and exhibited preferential (110) orientation, are compared. XRD shows that the MF-BST films exhibit preferential (111) orientation and better crystallization than the RF-BST films at the same annealing temperature. AFM displayed that the MF-BST films were smooth and compact. XPS analysis exhibited that the MF-BST films revealed better surface and interface structural characteristics. Their dielectric properties were also compared.
