  Ba-deficient non-stoichiometric compositions of Ba5-xNb4O15-x (x=0 to 0.5) have been investigated for the purpose of improving microwave dielectric properties. While there was no significant variation in dielectric constant, variations in Q×f and TCF (temperature coefficient of frequency) values with the degree of Ba deficiency were prominent. Near zero TCF value was obtained for the composition of Ba4.77Nb4O14.77. The apparent formation of a second BaNb2O6 phase for the Ba-deficient compositions was believed as responsible for the improved TCF. It was interesting to note that the second phase was present more preferably inside of the sample.
