    • Abstract


      A novel (1−𝑥)Ba0.7Bi0.3Fe0.9Sn0.1O3-𝑥BaCo$_{0.02}^{II}$ Co$_{0.04}^{III}$Bi0.94O3 (0.2 ≤ 𝑥 ≤ 0.9) negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thick film thermistors with high thermistor constant was prepared by screen printing. The values of room-temperature resistivity, thermistor constant and activation energy of the thick film thermistors, increasing with the addition of Ba0.7Bi0.3Fe0.9Sn0.1O3, are in the range of 35.5 𝛺cm-1.34 M𝛺 cm, 2067–6139 K and 0.177-0.527 eV, respectively. This means that the electrical properties of the thick films are adjustable at a wide range, depending on the compositions. Impedance analysis shows that the magnitude of thick film bulk resistance is mainly attributed to the contribution of grain boundary.
