    • Abstract


      A new group of NBT-based lead-free piezoelectric ceramics, Na1/2Bi1/2TiO3–Na1/2Bi1/2(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3, was synthesized using the two-stage calcination method and depolarization temperatures and piezoelectric properties were also investigated. The XRD analysis showed that the ceramics system had a morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) between the rhombohedral and the tetragonal structure. The highest piezoelectric properties of 𝑑33 = 97 pC/N and 𝑘𝑡 = 0.46 were obtained near MPB compositions. Furthermore, the depolarization temperatures near MPB compositions were slightly decreased and the lowest 𝑇d was maintained at 210°C.
