Effects of Ag-Pd Powder on Ferroelectric and Mechanical Properties of PLZT Ceramics
The Ag-Pd/PLZT composites were prepared by the conventional electronic ceramics method. The electrical and mechanical properties of the composites were investigated. As the amount of doped Ag-Pd particles increased, the fatigue and mechanical properties of the composites were improved, and the dielectric and ferroelectric properties after electric fatigue dropped less. The results indicate that the fatigue process leaves less damage on the composites due to the Ag-Pd particles incorporation. It is proposed that the improvement of fatigue property may be attributed mainly to the improvement of mechanical property.
