Microstructure Evolution and Microwave Dielectric Properties of Multi-Phase Ba(Ti1-xMx)O3 Ceramics


Article Preview

In this study, the feasibility for use of multiphase BaTiO3 ceramics as microwave dielectric resonators was evaluated through the substitution of metal ions in B sites, such as ions of Mn, Co, Mg, In, Fe, Zn, and Ni. The effects of metal ions substitution and sintering conditions on the densification, microstructural evolution and microwave properties of the BaTiO3 ceramics containing cubic and hexagonal phase were examined.
