Study on Microstructure and Properties of BTBY Piezoelectric Ceramics with High Curie Temperature
(1-x)(0.6BIT-0.4BT)-xBiYbO3(BTBY) ceramics with high Curie temperature were prepared by the conventional processing. The effect of BiYbO3 content on the microstructure and electrical properties was investigated. The results show that the main phase of BTBY ceramics is BIT-BT, and a new phase BaBi4Ti4O15 (BBT) appeared. The grain morphology of BTPY ceramics are platelike and the grain size was significantly increased with increasing content of BiYbO3 .Tc of all the BTBY samples are above 440 . The BTBY ceramics show obvious dielectric relaxor characteristic. The dispersion factor γ, the dielectric constant εr, and the dielectric loss tanδ decreased with increasing the content of BiYbO3. When the content of BiYbO3 is 0.06, the optimal properties of BTBY ceramics are obtained, Tc is 457 , εr is 165, tanδ is 0.0223 and d33 is 10 pC·N-1.
