Synthesis and Properties of (Bi0.5Na0.5)TiO3 Powders by Hydrothermal Method


Article Preview

Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3 (NBT) is considered to be an excellent candidate for lead-free piezoelectric ceramics. In this study, we propose a hydrothermal method for the preparation of single phase NBT powder at relatively low treatment-temperature. The particle size and morphology of the synthesized powders were examined by SEM. The powders were further pressed into disk and sintered at 1120°C/2h in air, and its properties and microstructure were compared with traditionally prepared samples.
