Low Temperature Hydrothermal Synthesis and Sintering of Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3


Article Preview

Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 nanopowders (~ 80 nm in size) were prepared by low temperature hydrothermal process. The process and synthesis mechanism were discussed in detail. Furthermore, the powders were pressed into disc-shaped pellets and sintered at different temperatures. The frequency dependence of the dielectric constant and loss angle tangent of the sintered BST ceramics are measured from room temperature to 500°C and a diffuse dielectric anomaly by the dielectric relaxation was found.
