Preparation and Characterization of Ce-Doped Ba0.2Sr0.8TiO3 Ferroelectric Ceramics
The structure and property of Ce-doped Ba0.2Sr0.8TiO3 (BST) were investigated as a function of Ce content. The density experiment results confirmed that increasing the Ce doping ratio caused the decrease in shrinkage factor of BST in the sintering procedure. Additionally, both Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis showed that the grain size of Ce-doped BST was dependent on the Ce content. Further more, the dielectric constant and dielectric loss had a curve relationship with increasing Ce content. The improvement of the electrical properties of Ce doping BST may be related to the decrease in the concentration of oxygen vacancies. According to the research, the diameter of grain, the dielectric constant and loss factor of the 1mol% Ce-doped Ba0.2Sr0.8TiO3 were 500nm, 365.8 and 0.0063, respectively.
