    • Abstract


      A novel solid solution in the system Bi-W-Cu-O has been synthesized and its structural and dielectric properties studied. The solid solution Bi2O3-(1 −x)WO3-xCuO exists up tox=0·7; the solid solutions up tox=0·65 are orthorhombic but stabilize in tetragonal structure in a narrow range aroundx=0·7. The solid solutions are non-centrosymmetric and exhibit ferroelectric behaviour similar to their parent phase Bi2WO6. The Curie point of the solid solution is found to decrease with increase inx.
