Sintering and Dielectric Properties of Excess Bi2O3 Doped BaBi2Nb2O9 Ceramics


Article Preview

In this study, ferroelectric materials with Bi-layered structure BaBi2Nb2O9 with excess x wt% Bi2O3 (x=0, 1.5, and 3) are investigated as the main compositions, and the sintering is proceeded from 1000oC~1100oC. The effect of Bi2O3 on the morphologies, crystal structure, and dielectric characteristics of BaBi2Nb2O9 ceramics is developed with the aid of SEM, X-ray diffraction, and dielectric-temperature curves. Dielectric properties are investigated in the temperature of 25oC~ 465oC at frequency 10KHz~1MHz. It is found that sintering temperature and Bi2O3 content has no apparent influence on the Curie temperatures, but they have large influence on the maximum dielectric constants.
