Bi3.5Nd0.5Ti3O12 (BNT) ferroelectrics modified with different concentrations of Nb are prepared by a hot-pressing method. XRD diffraction shows that all samples have only a layeredstructured pervoskite phase. Raman spectra confirm that the crystal symmetry change locally when increasing Nb concentration. It is found that the introduction of a suitable amount of Nb can enhance the remnant polarization of BNT. The temperature dependence of dielectric constant is also investigated in BNT ceramics. All samples have high Curie temperature above 530°C.
