  • Publication number: 20160351655
    Abstract: High-throughput deposition of a voltage-tunable dielectric material onto a substrate comprising a conductive electrode is provided. Respective gradients in at least two grain size defining parameters of the deposition are simultaneously provided, the respective gradients occurring for a first time period thereby producing a smoothly changing columnar crystalline habit of the voltage-tunable dielectric material. When the first time period has ended, the deposition continues for a second time period where the grain size defining parameters are held constant. In particular, the smoothly changing columnar crystalline habit of the voltage-tunable dielectric material is intentionally distorted by simultaneously providing the respective gradients in the in at least two grain size defining parameters of the deposition.
