Crystallization Behavior of KNbO3 Series Precursors Synthesized by CSD Process

Article Preview

The development of lead-free piezoelectric materials has been required from the viewpoint of environmental preservation. We focused the lead-free KNbO3-based systems, and used a chemical solution deposition (CSD) process to obtain their precursor. (Na1-xKx)NbO3 precursor solutions were prepared from metal alkoxides and solvents such as absolute ethanol and 2-methoxyethanol. Crystallization behavior of the precursor gels obtained from the above solutions was investigated by the thermogravimetry differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) measurement.
