Preparation and Ferroelectric Properties of (Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 Ceramics
(Ba0.7Ca0.3)TiO3 (BCT) powders and ceramics have been prepared by sol-gel technique. Structural evolution of the BCT dry gels are investigated by thermal gravimetric analysis–differential scanning calorimetry. It is found that BCT crystallites can be formed before 800 . Well-sintered samples are synthesized at 1260 for 2h. The crystal structure of the BCT powders is studied by XRD and ferroelectric properties of the ceramics are characterized by TF analyzer 2000. The Curie temperature Tc of the BCT ceramics is at about 125 . The maximum dielectric constant (εr) reaches about 4851 at 125 and hysteresis loops are measured with the temperature range from 25 to 150 .
