The crystal structures of barium titanate (BaTiO3) fine particles with a size around 140 nm were investigated using a synchrotron radiation X-ray diffraction method. The observed diffraction pattern was analyzed by Rietveld method assuming several models. As a result, it is found that the BaTiO3 fine particles have composite structures include (a) a tetragonal region with a constant c/a ratio, (b) a tetragonal region with gradient c/a ratios and (c) a cubic region. In order to estimate these structures, the partial profile relaxation technique was applied in the Rietveld refinement. It is considered that the composite structure is important for the size effect on BaTiO3 fine particles.
