Article Preview

b-axis oriented SrO substituted BaTi2O5 (Ba1-xSrxTi2O5) was prepared by arc-melting. The effect of SrO substitution on the dielectric properties of BaTi2O5 (BT2) was investigated by A.C. impedance spectroscopy. The Cole-Cole plot of Ba1-xSrxTi2O5 showed a distorted semi-circle which was deconvoluted into two semicircles corresponding to the bulk BT2 and a second phase. The complex impedance, modulus and capacitances from the ferroelectric bulk matrix and the paraelectric second phase of Ba1-xSrxTi2O5 were simulated by a Maxwell-Wagner model.
