Paper Title:
Effect of CeO2 on the Electrical Properties of Ta2O5-Doped TiO2 Capacitor-Varistor Ceramics
  Abstract

TiO2 varistors doped with 0.1 mol% Ta and different concentrations of CeO2 were obtained by ceramic sintering processing at 1400 °C. The effect of CeO2 on the nonlinear electrical behavior and dielectric properties of the Ta2O5-doped TiO2 ceramics were investigated. The nonlinear current (I)-voltage (V) characteristics of TiO2 are examined when doped with small quantities (0.1-0.9 mol%) of CeO2. It is found that CeO2 affects the electrical properties and the dielectric properties of the TiO2-based varistors. The samples have the nonlinear coefficients (α) values of (3.0-5.0), breakdown voltages (10-30 V/mm) and ultrahigh dielectric constants which is up to 105. A small quantities of CeO2 can improve the nonlinear properties of the samples significantly. It was found that an optimal doping composition of 99.4 mol% TiO2 - 0.1 mol% Ta2O5 - 0.30 mol% CeO2 was obtained with low breakdown voltage of 14.2 V/mm, high nonlinear constant of 4.5 , an ultrahigh electrical permittivity of 8.381.22×105 (measured at 1 kHz) and low tanδ of 0.32, which is consistent with the highest grain boundary barriers of the ceramics. The theory of defects in the crystal lattice was introduced to explain the nonlinear electrical behavior of the CeO2-doped TiO2-based varistor ceramics.
