Sr2-x(Li2/3, Ce1/3)x Nb2O7 (x = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5) (SLCN) ceramics were prepared by solid-state reaction method. The microstructure, dielectric and ferroelectric properties were investigated. The results show that all ceramics have high relative densities. Li+ and Ce4+ co-doping can promote the grains growing, and improve the dielectric and ferroelectric properties of strontium niobate ceramics. The dielectric constant decreases firstly, and then increases with the increasing of x in Sr2-x(Li2/3, Ce1/3)x Nb2O7, and the sample with x = 0.5 exhibits enhanced dielectric properties (εr ≈ 250, tanδ ≈ 0.02). The remnant polarization (Pr) and coercive electric field (Ec) of SLCN ceramics increase firstly, and then decrease with the increasing of Li+ and Ce4+ content, finally reach the maximum value of remnant polarization (Pr ≈ 0.058μC/cm2, Ec ≈ 6.87 kV/cm ) for x = 0.2.
