Low Temperature Synthesis of Strontium Barium Niobate by Spark Plasma Sintering
Pure Strontium barium niobate, Sr0.5Ba0.5Nb2O6 (SBN50), was synthesized successfully by spark plasma sintering from two mixtures: SrCO3/BaCO3/Nb2O5 mixtures and the mixtures calcined at 800oC. The phase identification of the SBN crystalline grains was evaluated by X-ray diffraction analysis, and the formation mechanism was discussion based on the XRD results at various temperatures. They are different when SrCO3/BaCO3/Nb2O5 powder mixtures and the mixtures calcined at 800oC was chosen as the raw materials.
