Relaxor Characteristics of BaTiO3-Bi(Mg1/2Ti1/2)O3 Ceramics
Relaxor characteristics of (1-x)BaTiO3-xBi(Mg1/2Ti1/2)O3 (x=0.1–0.7) ceramics were investigated. Microstructural observation showed second phases and no domain structure for the sample with x=0.6. Deviation from the Curie-Weiss behavior was found in temperature dependence of the inverse permittivity for all the samples. The stronger dielectric dispersion was found for x=0.6 and 0.7 and they were described by the Vogel-Fulcher relationship. The temperature dependence of the remanent polarization and coercive field indicated the freezing temperature was 100~150°C for x=0.6. The strong dielectric dispersion of x=0.6 is believed to be induced by the structural disorder due to the second phases.
