The relative phase shift is obtained from the variation of the dielectric constant with DC biasing fields. Ferroelectric thin films of BST have usually been fabricated by conventional methods, such as RF sputtering [23], laser ablation [24], MOCVD [25] and hydrothermal treatment [25]. Even though sputtering is widely used for the deposition of thin films, it has the potential for film degradation by neutral and negative-ion bombardment during film growth. For BST, this ‘re-sputtering’ can lead to ‘off-stoichiometric’ films and degradation of its electrical properties.

This process of reshaping and cooling can be repeated several times. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or low-density polyethylene (LDPE), poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) and nylon are some examples of thermoplastic polymers. Thermoset polymers, on the other hand, can flow easily and can be molded when initially produced. Once they are molded in to their shape, usually by applying heat and pressure, these materials become very hard. This process of the polymer becoming an infusible and insoluble mass is called ‘curing’.

7). Crosslinked polymers are insoluble in all solvents, even at elevated temperatures. Based on their physical properties, polymers may be classified as either thermoplastic or thermoset. A polymer is said to be a thermoplastic if it softens (flows) when it is squeezed, or pulled, by a load, usually at a high temperature, and hardens on cooling. This process of reshaping and cooling can be repeated several times. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or low-density polyethylene (LDPE), poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) and nylon are some examples of thermoplastic polymers.
