Abstract: The performance of microstrip antennas using composite thick films of (BTOBaTiO3) and CCTO (CaCu3Ti4O12) as a substrate were studied. The dielectric permittivity and loss of (BTO)x-(CCTO)1 x thick films with x 5 0, 0.2, 0.5, 0.8, 0.9, and 1 were examined. These films were prepared in two-layer geometry using the screen-printing technique on Al2O3 substrates. Mechanical alloying followed by the solid-state procedure was successfully employed to produce powders of CCTO (CaCu3Ti4O12) used in the films. We also studied the films dielectric permittivity (K) and loss (D) in the medium-frequency (MF) range (100 Hz to 1 MHz). The performance of a planar microstrip antenna that uses the (BTO)x:(CCTO)1 x thick films as a substrate of high K was also examined in the microwave range of frequencies. From the analysis of the antenna operation of the samples, one can conclude that the higher values of K in the range of 2.5–3.3 GHz antennas is presented by the BTO substrates. For the BTO film, the K value is ;66 (2.6 GHz) and decreases to 34 for the CCTO film (3 GHz). For the BTO and CCTO films, the antenna bandwidths (BW) are ;50% and ;38%, respectively. The higher bandwidth presented by the BTO compared to the CCTO is certainly associated with the higher loss presented by the BTO phase, which is a ferroelectric phase. Therefore, these measurements confirm the potential use of such materials for small microwave planar antennas, where the miniaturization of the devices is crucial.
