Influence of Doped Mn, Cu, Ni and Fe on Electrical Properties of SrTiO3 Ceramics
MnCO3, CuO, NiO and Fe2O3 doped SrTiO3 multifunction ceramics were fabricated firstly. The microstructure and electrical properties were investigated. The results show that MnCO3 doped ceramic and CuO doped ceramic possess relative higher resistivity (ρ),nonlinear coefficient (α), varistor voltage (V1mA) and relative lower dielectric constant (ε),dielectric loss (tgδ) in contrast with NiO doped ceramic and Fe2O3 doped ceramic with the same contents under the same sintering conditions. The electrical properties among the ceramics doped are different due to the different behaviors of Mn,Cu,Ni and Fe acceptor dopants during the sintering course.
