The effects of sintering temperature and poling condition on the piezoelectric properties of 0.935(Bi0.5Na0.5)TiO3 - 0.065BaTiO3 ceramics

Open access


The 0.935(Bi0.5Na0.5) TiO3 -0.065BaTiO3 (abbreviated as BNT6.5BT) lead-free ceramics were prepared by conventional solid state sintering technique. The effects of sintering temperature (1150–1200 °C) and poling condition on its piezoelectric properties were examined. Piezoelectric properties like the piezoelectric constant (d33) and electromechanical factors (kp, kt) depend on the poling field and poling temperature, whereas different poling times, in the 5–30 min range, were not observed to have any significant effect on the piezoelectric properties. With respect to piezoelectric properties, the chosen sintering temperature range is suitable for BNT6.5BT ceramics.
