Bilayer structures of Ba0.25Sr0.75TiO3/Ba0.75Sr0.25TiO3 were deposited in-situ on MgO substrates using pulsed laser deposition. To investigate the electrical properties, interdigital capacitor structures were patterned on the top of the film using photolithography followed by ion-milling processes. The capacitance and the tunability of the structures were measured between 100 and 400 K in the frequency range 1 to 3 GHz. The temperature coefficient of capacitance was evaluated and compared against the same structure patterned on a Ba0.5Sr0.5TiO3 thin film. The dielectric constant of the thin film was evaluated using a conformal transformation. It was seen that the bilayer structure had a much improved temperature coefficient of capacitance but a lower dielectric constant.
