Abstract

While Pb (Zn13 Nb23) O3 -PbTi O3 (PZN-PT) single crystals have shown superior ferroelectric properties, less scientific and technical interests have been placed on PZN-PT polycrystalline ceramics due to their poor thermodynamic stability and the difficult processing conditions. Here, we stabilized the PZN-PT based ceramics by adding alkali niobates such as NaNb O3 (NN) and KNb O3 (KN) and investigated their structure and dielectric properties. Two stabilization mechanisms are suggested in alkali niobate added PZN-PT ceramics, increased tolerance factor and enhanced electronegativity difference. KN stabilized the perovskite structure of PZN-PT based ceramics more effectively than NN. Both PZN-PT-KN and PZN-PT-NN ceramics showed the typical behavior of relaxor ferroelectrics. The temperature of maximum dielectric constant of PZN-PT-NN was slightly higher than that of the PZN-PT-KN, which was explained by the difference in ionic size and B -site ordering. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
