    • Abstract


      Lead magnesium niobate (PMN) based binary with lead titanate (PT), lead iron niobate (PFN) and lead zinc niobate (PZN) and ternary with PZN-PT and PFN-PT solid solutions have been synthesized. In depth characterization using X-ray diffraction and SEM techniques have revealed the major perovskite phase formation. Amongst all the solid solutions, PMN-PZN-PT has given the highest values of permittivity as 19,740 and 23,700 withTc as 34°C when sintered at 1080°C and 1180°C respectively on the one hand and on the other, PFN containing solid solutions exhibited distinct deviation from the relaxor behaviour.
