We have investigated the structural, compositional, interfacial, surface morphological and dielectric properties of Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 solid solution thin films La doped from 0 to 10 mol%. The doped thin films were prepared by the metalorganic solution deposition technique using carboxylate-alkoxide precursors. After post-deposition annealing in oxygen ambient at 750 °C the films were characterized via x-ray diffraction, Auger electron microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. The electrical measurements were achieved in the metal-insulator-metal (MIM) configuration with Pt as the top and bottom electrode. Our results demonstrated that La doping had a strong effect on the films microstructural, dielectric and insulating properties. Specifically, 1 mol% La doped BST films exhibited a lower dielectric constant, 283 and higher resistivity 31.4×1013 W-cm with respect to that of undoped BST. The loss tangent and tunability (at 100 kHz) of the 1 mol% La doped BST films were 0.019 and 21% (at E=300kV/cm) respectively.
