The microwave dielectric properties and microstructures of (1 - x)La(Mg0.5Ti0.5)O3-x(Ca0.8Sr 0.2)TiO3 ceramics, prepared by a mixed oxide route, have been investigated. The forming of solid solutions was confirmed by the XRD patterns and the measured lattice parameters for all compositions. A near zero τf was achieved for samples with x = 0.5, although the dielectric properties varied with sintering temperature. The Q × f value of 0.5La(Mg0.5Ti0.5)O3-0.5(Ca0.8Sr 0.2)TiO3 increased up to 1475 °C, after which it decreased. The decrease in dielectric properties was coincident with the onset of rapid grain growth. The optimum combination of microwave dielectric properties was achieved at 1475 °C for samples where x = 0.5 with a dielectric constant εr of 47.12, a Q × f value of 35,000 GHz (measured at 6.2 GHz) and a τf value of -4.7 ppm/°C.
