CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) thin film was successfully deposited on boron doped silica substrate by chemical solution deposition and rapid thermal processing. The phase and microstructure of the deposited films were studied as a function of sintering temperature, employing X-ray diffractometry and scanning electron microscopy. Dielectric properties of the films were measured at room temperature using impedance spectroscopy. Polycrystalline pure phase CCTO thin films with (220) preferential orientation was obtained at a sintering temperature of 750°C. There was a bimodal size distribution of grains. The dielectric constant and loss factor at 1 kHz obtained for a film sintered at 750°C was 𝑘 ∼ 2000 and tan 𝛿 ∼ 0.05.
