Abstract

Barium zirconate titanate Ba(ZryTi1-y)O-3 (BZT, y = 0.2, 0.25, 0.30, 0.35) ceramics have been prepared by a sol-gel process. The temperature dependence of dielectric permittivity of the ceramics has been investigated. The results show that the phase transition temperature T-C (or T-m) is suppressed with increasing Zr content. The degree of diffuseness of the phase transition is more pronounced for higher Zr content, implying the existence of a composition-induced diffuse phase transition of the ceramics with 0.20 less than or equal to y less than or equal to 0.35. For BZT ceramics with y > 0.25, a relaxor ferroelectric characteristic is observed. High turtability and figure of merit are obtained in BZT compositions investigated, which imply that these ceramics are promising materials for tunable capacitor applications.
