Effect of Sintering Temperature on Structure, Piezoelectric and Ferroelectric Properties of (Na0.5Bi0.5)0.90Ba0.10TiO3 Ceramic


Article Preview

Structures, ferroelectric and piezoelectric properties of (Na0.5Bi0.5)0.90Ba0.10TiO3 ceramic sintered at different temperatures were investigated. The results confirm an important role of sintering temperature on the structure and electrical properties of the ceramic. It was found that the increase of sintering temperature in the range of 1110-1160  promoted the development of crystal structure and microstructural densification, leading to an improvement in ferroelectric properties, poling process and piezoelectric properties. Further increase of the sintering temperature above 1160  resulted in a slight deformation of ceramic specimens. With respect to sintering behavior and piezoelectric properties, a relatively narrow sintering temperature range near 1150  was ascertained to be preferred for the ceramic.
