Dielectric and ferroelectric properties of BaTi1-xSnxO3 multilayered ceramics
MetadataShow full item record
Multilayered BaTi1-xSnxO3 (BTS) ceramics with different Ti/Sn ratios were produced by pressing and sintering at 1420 degrees C for 2 hours. X-ray diffractometry, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy were used for structural, microstructural and elemental analysis, respectively. The dielectric and ferroelectric behavior of sintered samples was studied, too. It is found that in ingredient materials, with increasing Sri content, the tetragonality decreases; Curie temperature moves towards room temperature, while the maximum of the dielectric constant increases, and also, they becomes less hysteretic. It is noticed that multilayered BTS ceramics with different Ti/Sn contents have a broad transition temperature and show a relatively high dielectric constant in a wide temperature range. It is shown that dielectric properties of these materials may be modified by a combination of different BTS powders as well as layers number.
