Material series with compositional formula Ba1.0–𝑥Pb𝑥Ti0.90Zr0.10O3 (0 ≤ 𝑥 ≤ 0.20, in steps of 0.05) were prepared by conventional solid state method. All the samples were subjected to X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies and found to be single phase with perovskite structure. SEM measurements were done in order to collect micro-structural information. Different transition temperatures were found to depend on the Pb content. Tetragonality (𝑐/𝑎) and Curie temperature (𝑇c) increase with increase in lead content 𝑥. Dielectric properties were studied as a function of temperature and frequencies.

A polycrystalline sample of Zr-doped barium titanate (BaTiO3) was prepared by conventional solid state reaction method. The effect of Zr (0.15) on the structural and microstructural properties of BaTiO3 was investigated by XRD and SEM. The electrical properties (dielectric, ferroelectric and impedance spectroscopy) were measured in wide range of frequency and temperature. With substitutions of Zr, the structure of BaTiO3 changes from tetragonal to rhombohedral. Lattice parameters were found to increase with substitution. The room temperature dielectric constant increases from ∼ 1675 to ∼ 10586 and peak dielectric constant value increases from ∼ 13626 to ∼ 21023 with diffuse phase transition. Impedance spectroscopy reveals the formation of grain and grain boundary in the material and found to decrease with increase in temperature.
