Production, Sintering and Microstructural Characteristics of Ba2MgWO6 Ceramics
In the present era, high technology wireless communication and mobile communication systems require advanced ceramics as high frequency dielectric resonators. In the present work we have produced Ba2MgWO6 (BMW) ceramics and studied its structural, microstructural and mechanical properties. Ba2MgWO6 (BMW) ceramics belong to the Ba2MgTaO6 (BMT) and Ba2ZnTaO6 (BZT) ceramics family, which is well known ceramic material for the communication technology. There is little information available on materials characteristics of BMW ceramics. Structural characteristics of BMW ceramics were studied by X-ray diffractometry. Microstructural characteristics were studied by scanning electron microscopy and mechanical behavior was tested by Vickers micro-hardness tests on sintered BMW bodies. This article reports these characteristics of BMW ceramics and discusses its implications on application viability.
