Abstract:

Article Preview

Pr6O11 doped ZnO-based varistor powders were prepared by a method of pyrogenic decomposition nitrate, which were together with ZnO powders, made into rounded mass and sintered at different temperatures. The effects of sintering temperatures on the composition, microstructure and electrical properties of Pr6O11 doped ZnO-based varistors were investigated. The results show that the optimum sintering temperature is at 1150 °C with 6 μm ZnO average grain size and the samples possess the advantageous electrical properties: varistor voltage of about 480 V/mm, non linear coefficient reaching 44 and leakage current of 0.7 μA.
