Abstract

We explore the frequency dependent permittivity of Ruddlesden-Popper series Sr(n+1)Ti(n)O(3n+1) (n= 1, 2, 3) thin films as a function of temperature and dc electric-field. Interdigitated capacitors and coplanar waveguides are used to extract the frequency response from 500 Hz to 40 GHz. At room temperature, the permittivities obtained for Sr(n+1)Ti(n)O(3n+1) (n= 1, 2, 3) were 42+/-3, 54+/-3, and 77+/-2, respectively and were independent of frequency. At low temperatures the dielectric constant increases, and electric field tunability develops in Sr(4)Ti(3)O(10) . Loss tangent for the series members (n=1, 2, 3) were below our measurement sensitivity, but are less than 4% (0.04).
