BaTiO3–(Bi1/2Na1/2)TiO3 (abbreviated as BT-BNT) solid solution ceramics, as a lead-free PTC (Positive Temperature Coefficient of resistivity) thermistor material usable over 130°C, were synthesized in air atmosphere. By conventional processes, La-doping was not effective in giving semiconducting property to the BT-BNT ceramics because of volatilization of sodium and bismuth during sintering. By preventing the volatilization by lowering the sintering temperature using very fine TiO2 powder and by adding calcium oxide to calcined BT-BNT powders, we obtained BT-BNT semiconducting ceramics which shows a resistivity change near Curie temperature.
