Article Preview

We have studied the synthesis and sintering of BaTiO3 (BTO) nanometric powders produced by Pechini technique. A laser sintering procedure was applied to the BTO and its major advantage was the quickness of the processing. We have used the radiation of a CO2 laser (CW – 100 W) as the heating source. A linear rate of irradiation was applied to avoid macroscopic defects. The calcined powder at 800°C presented a single crystalline phase confirmed by the XRD and a crystallite size of 20 nm. BTO ceramics sintered at Pmax = 7.0 W/mm2 for 10 min of irradiation showed a high relative density (98 ± 1) % with an average grain size of 400 nm for a total time of sintering of 40 minutes.
