      Modified ceramics (Pb1−xCax)[(Mn0·5W0·5)0·10Ti0·90]O3 have been fabricated forx=0, 0·05, 0·10 and 0·15 by high temperature solid state reaction technique. XRD, SEM, DTA and electrical studies of the sample withx=0·10 have been performed. These studies show that the sample is homogeneous single phase perovskite type with tetragonal structure. The phase transition occurs at 330°C. Electrical behaviour of other samples have also been investigated as a function of frequency (1 kHz to 1 MHz) and temperature (26°C to 300°C). The samples withx=0·05 and 0·10 have low loss, low dielectric constant, and show negligible pyroelectric effect. The sample withx=0·15 has minimum values ofɛ and loss which are temperature independent up to about 200°C. It also shows good pyroelectric behaviour. Hence it may be of use in pyroelectric infrared sensors.

      The ceramic samples of lithium-samarium modified lead molybdate, Pb(Li1/4 Sm1/4 Mo1/2)O3 (PLSM)—a member of ABO3 family were prepared by solid state reaction technique at ≈ 600–700°C. Preliminary X-ray analysis suggests the formation of single phase orthorhombic compound of PLSM. Studies of surface morphology, uniform particle/grain distribution, and presence of elements in the compound were completed using scanning electron microscope (SEM). Measurements of dielectric constant (ɛ), loss (tanδ) and conductivity (σ) at different frequencies and temperatures provided that the compound has a strong dielectric anomaly at 107°C.

      Polycrystalline sample of Pb(Li1/4Eu1/4Mo1/2)O3 was prepared by usual ceramic route. X-ray diffraction, SEM and EDAX were used to check the formation, homogeneity and elements present in the compound. The measurement of dielectric constant (ɛ), dielectric loss (tanδ), hysteresis loop parameters (e.g. spontaneous polarization) as function of frequency and temperature suggest that the compound is a ferroelectric one and has a ferro-paraelectric phase transition at 112 ± 2°C. The measurement of dc resistivity both as function of biasing electric field and temperature of the compound suggests that the compound has negative temperature coefficient (NTC) of resistance above 100°C.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Polycrystalline samples of Ba5RTi3Nb7O30 [R=Nd, Eu, Gd], were prepared using high-temperature solid-state reaction technique. Preliminary X-ray structural analysis of the compounds shows the formation of single phase compounds (orthorhombic crystal system) at room temperature. Detailed studies of dielectric properties (ɛ, tanδ,σ) as a function of frequency (400 Hz to 10 kHz) and temperature (30° to 380°C) show that these compounds exhibit diffuse ferroelectric phase transition.
