Structural and Dielectric Properties of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 Ferroelectric Ceramics


Article Preview

Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 (NBT) ceramics were synthesized by conventional solid state reaction method. Structural and dielectric properties of these ceramics were investigated. Crystalline phase of sintered ceramics was investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The Rietveld refinement of powder X-ray diffraction revealed that the prepared ceramics exhibit the rhombohedral space group R3c. Dielectric properties of Na0.5Bi0. analyzer.5TiO3 (NBT) ceramics were studied at different temperatures in a wide frequency range using impedance
