Effect of ZrO2 Doping in Physical Properties of Barium Iron Niobate Ceramics
In this work, preparation conditions and effect of ZrO2 doped BaFe0.5Nb0.5O3 ceramics were studied. Relationship between structure and dielectric properties was investigated. Single-phase cubic BFN powder was synthesized by solid-state reaction at 1200°C for 4 hours with heating and cooling rate of 5°C/min. Various amount of ZrO2 doped from 0.1 to 0.5 %weight were used for doping. After that BFN ceramics were formed via uniaxial pressing and sintered at 1300°C for 4 hours with heating and cooling rate of 5°C/min. Physical properties, microstructure, phase evolution and dielectric properties were studied to find out the optimum conditions for high voltage capacitor applications.
