Preparation of PLZT Powders from Oxides via High-Energy Ball Milling Process
Lanthanum-modified lead zirconate-titanate (PLZT5/54/46) powders were prepared from the commercial PbO, La2O3, TiO2 and ZrO2 powders by high-energy ball milling process. The synthesized powders milled for different hours were characterized using XRD and SEM. Thedesigned PLZT perovskite phase was formed from the mixture of the starting materials after milling for 20 hours. PLZT(5/54/46) ceramics were obtained using the produced powders milled for 20 h followed by sintering at temperatures ranging from 1000 to1200°C. Ferroelectric property of the PLZT ceramics was also measured.
