KUMARI, K.; PRASAD, K.; YADAV, K.L.  and  SEN, S.. Structural and dielectric properties of ZrO2 added (Na1/2Bi1/2)TiO3 ceramic. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.2, pp.297-300. ISSN 0103-9733.

Polycrystalline samples of ZrO2 added (Na1/2Bi1/2)TiO3 were prepared using high-temperature solid-state reaction method at 1050ºC and subsequent sintering at 1090ºC in air atmosphere. Rietveld analyses of XRD data indicated the formation of a single-phase hexagonal structure with R3c symmetry. Dielectric studies revealed the relaxor behaviour. The addition of ZrO2 to (Na1/2Bi1/2)TiO3 shifted phase transition temperature as well as depolarization temperature to higher side which is desirable for piezoelectric applications. The frequency dependence of the temperature of the permittivity maximum was modeled using Vogel-Fulcher relation. The dielectric relaxation in the system is found to be analogous to the magnetic relaxation in spin-glass system.
