(Ba_0.92,Ca_0.08)(Ti_0.92,Zr_0.08)O_3 thin films were prepared from Ba-Ti and Ca-Zr precursors by sol-gel processing. Polymerizable solutions containing Ba-Ti and Ca-Zr, respectively, were newly synthesized. Decomposition of the starting compounds and crystallization behavior of the film were examined by using TG/DTA and XRD. Microstructure of thin films was observed by using SEM. Polycrystalline (Ba_0.92,Ca_0.08)(Ti_0.92, Zr_0.08)O_3 films obtained by firing at 800°C were dense with fine grains. The thin films showed a dielectric constant of 1200 and dielectric loss of 0.5%.
