Crystallite Size Measurement of Doped CaCu2.8Co0.2Ti4O12 Ceramic Samples Using Various Method


Article Preview

CaCu2.8Co0.2Ti4O12 ceramics were prepared by microwave-assisted sol gel method. The properties of materials can be highly dependent on crystallite size therefore measuring the crystallite size is among the important part in materials research work. In the present study, the crystallite size of the CaCu2.8Co0.2Ti4O12 ceramics sintered at temperature ranged from 975-1125°C were investigated. Different methods, approach and strategy of crystallite size measurement were demonstrated in this papers.Keywords: Crystallite size, CCTO
