A thermodynamic model was developed to analyze the effect of the difference in the thermal
expansion coefficient TEC of a multilayered barium strontium titanate Ba1-ySryTiO3 BST
ferroelectric heterostructure and a passive substrate on the dielectric properties by taking into
account electrostatic and electromechanical interactions between the ferroelectric layers. Results
show that the dielectric constant and tunability can be maximized by minimizing the TEC mismatch.
Furthermore, lower processing temperatures lead to lower thermal strains and thus to better
