Due to the continuous demand for miniaturization of electronics, there is an interest in developing dielectric materials with higher permittivity. Recently, the CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) has been reported [1, 2, 3], has a very high permittivity (∼104) at room temperature and very small temperature dependence in a broad temperature range. However, it appears that the dielectric properties of CCTO are very sensitive to processing. [4, 5, 6, 7] Permittivities from 478 to 300,000 have been obtained for CCTO prepared by different routes. The original work, done by Subramanian et al.  and Ramirez et al.  using conventional mixed-oxide processing via mortar and pestle, showed that room temperature permittivities ranged from 10,000 to 20,000. Other researchers using the same technique have reported permittivities of 478, 2400 and 18,700 [8, 9, 10]. The highest permittivity reported as derived from impedance spectroscopy measurements was 300,000 for CCTO made from powder that was...
