Thin films of composition (Ba,Sr)yTiO2+y with 0.43 ≤ y ≤; 1.64, were deposited by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on (100) MgO substrates at various growth conditions. X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy studies showed that the films were composed of epitaxial Ba1–xSrxTiO3 (x ≈0.06) grains and an amorphous phase. The orientation of the tetragonal Ba1–xSrxTiO3 grains (pure a axis, pure c axis, or a mix of the two) was found to be strongly dependent upon film composition. This composition dependence is explained for the majority of the Ti-rich films by an analysis of average strains in the two-phase films, assuming a compressive strain of ≈1% in the amorphous phase.
