Sintering of Ba1-XSrXTiO3 Powders Prepared Using KOH-KNO3 Molten Salt Method
Barium strontium titanate (BST), which has a typical perovskite-type structure, shows excellent electrical properties. BST powders were synthesized by heating mixtures of commercial reagents with an excess of TiO2 in molten salts of KOH and KNO3, and the sintering behavior of the resulting powders was evaluated. The sample with the highest density of 95% was obtained by sintering of the BST powders.
