The effects of fluorine co-doping by means of a post-thermal annealing process of iron-doped BST thin films in a fluorine-containing atmosphere have been investigated. XPS and ToF-SIMS sputter depth profiling verified a homogeneous fluorine distribution in the thin films. By employing EPR, it was shown that singly charged ( Fe′Ti – VO ) defect complexes, as well as ‘isolated’ FeTi centres with a distribution of FO sites in remote coordination spheres exist in the fluorinated films. Tunability enhancement due to fluorine co-doping as well as a Q-factor enhancement due to iron doping is demonstrated.
