Title: Self-biased large magnetoelectric coupling in co-sintered Bi{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}TiO{sub 3} based piezoelectric and CoFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} based magnetostrictive bilayered composite

Abstract

In this work, magnetoelectric properties of a co-sintered bilayered composite of non-lead based piezoelectric 0.97(Bi{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}TiO{sub 3})–0.03(K{sub 0.47}Na{sub 0.47}Li{sub 0.06}Nb{sub 0.74}Sb{sub 0.06}Ta{sub 0.2}O{sub 3}) and magnetostrictive Co{sub 0.6}Zn{sub 0.4}Fe{sub 1.7}Mn{sub 0.3}O{sub 4} are presented. Similar optimal sintering conditions of the individual components lead to a very clean interface as evidenced in the scanning electron microscopy, angle dispersive X-ray diffraction, and energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) results. Clean interface results in strong intimate mechanical coupling between both components and causes a maximum transfer of induced strain, leading to a large magnetoelectric coupling ∼142 mV/cm·Oe measured in longitudinally magnetized-transversely polarized configuration (L-T mode). Remnant polarization ∼32 μC/cm{sup 2}, remnant magnetization ∼0.50 emu/g, and sufficiently high self biased magnetoelectricity ∼135 mV/cm Oe (L-T mode) were observed for this composite.

  • Magnetoelectric bilayered Pb(Zr{sub 0.52}Ti{sub 0.48})O{sub 3}-CoFe{sub 2}O{sub 4}(PZT-CFO) films with different PZT thicknesses were grown on (111)Pt/Ti/SiO{sub 2}/Si substrates using chemical solution spin-coating. Structural characterization by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy shows pure phases and well-defined interfaces between the PZT and CFO films. The CFO-PZT-substrate structure effectively alleviates the substrate clamping effect for the CFO layer, showing appreciable magnetoelectric responses in the composite films. Both the direct magnetoelectric effect and the magnetic field-induced Raman shifts in the A{sub 1}(TO{sub 1}) soft mode of PZT demonstrate the magnetic-mechanical-electric coupling in the films. The results also indicate that with a constant CFOmore » layer thickness, the thickness of the PZT layer plays an important role in the stress relaxation and strong magnetoelectric coupling. The coupling could be further enhanced by increasing the CFO thickness, optimizing the volume (thickness) fraction of the PZT thickness, and releasing the clamping effect from the substrate.« less
  • The phase structure, dielectric and piezoelectric properties of a new lead-free piezoelectric system (1 − x)Bi{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}TiO{sub 3}–xBi(Zn{sub 0.5}Hf{sub 0.5})O{sub 3} [(1 − x)BNT–xBZH, x = 0, 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, and 0.04] were investigated. The structure of Bi(Zn{sub 0.5}Hf{sub 0.5})O{sub 3} was calculated using first-principles method and (1 − x)BNT–xBZH ceramics were fabricated by conventional solid-state process. At room temperature, a morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) from rhombohedral to pseudocubic is identified near x = 0.02 by the analysis of X-ray diffraction patterns. The ceramics with MPB near room temperature exhibit excellent electrical properties: the Curie temperature, maximum polarization, remnant polarization, and coercive field are 340 °C, 56.3 μC/cm{sup 2}, 43.5 μC/cm{sup 2},more » and 5.4 kV/mm, respectively, while the maximum positive bipolar strain and piezoelectric coefficient are 0.09% and 92 pC/N, respectively. In addition, a linear relationship between the MPB phase boundary composition and the calculated tetragonality of non-BNT end-member was demonstrated. Thus, this study not only shows a new BNT-based lead-free piezoelectric system but also suggest a new way to predict the composition at MPB a priori when designing new lead-free piezoelectric system.« less
  • Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} doped lead-free piezoelectric ceramics (Bi{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}){sub 0.94}Ba{sub 0.06}TiO{sub 3} (0-0.7 wt%) were synthesized by the conventional solid state reaction method, and the effect of Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} addition on the structure and electrical properties was investigated. X-ray diffraction shows that Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} diffuses into the lattice of (Bi{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}){sub 0.94}Ba{sub 0.06}TiO{sub 3} to form a solid solution with a pure perovskite structure. The temperature dependence of dielectric constant of Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} doped samples under various frequencies indicates obvious relaxor characteristics different from typical relaxor ferroelectric and the mechanism of the relaxor behavior wasmore » discussed. The optimum piezoelectric properties of piezoelectric constant d{sub 33} = 137 pC/N and the electromechanical coupling factor k{sub p} = 0.30 are obtained at 0.5% and 0.1% Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} addition, respectively.« less
  • A new lead-free piezoelectric ceramics of (1 - x)Bi 0.5Na 0.5TiO 3–xBa(Ni 1/3Nb 2/3)O 3 (BNT–BNN) (x = 0.0–0.07) have been prepared by a conventional solid reaction method. Their structures and electric properties have been investigated systematically. A pure perovskite phase can be formed in x ≤ 0.06. By the introduction of Ba(Ni 1/3Nb 2/3)O 3, the ceramics exhibit a lower coercive field EC. Composition for x = 0.02 shows optimal piezoelectric properties, with the piezoelectric coefficient d 33 = 121 pC/N. Temperature dependent P(E) loops and S(E) curves of 0.98BNT–0.02BNN indicate that the phase transition from the ferroelectric tomore » antiferroelectric takes place over a very wide temperature range from 75 to 150°C.« less
  • To realize multiferroic and magnetoelectric properties, bi-layered nanocomposite films consisting of CoFe{sub 2}O{sub 4} (CFO)/Pb{sub 1−x}Sr{sub x}TiO{sub 3} (PST) phases (x = 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3) have been deposited on Pt/TiO{sub 2}/SiO{sub 2}/Si substrate by using a metallo-organic decomposition process. Both the PST perovskite and the CFO spinel phases are confirmed from X-ray diffraction patterns and Raman spectra of the composite films. The composite films exhibit room temperature multiferroic properties. The values of saturation magnetization (M{sub s}), remanent magnetization (M{sub r}), and coercive field (H{sub c}) of the composite films are in the range of 108–119 kA/m, 42–51 kA/m, and 44.5–64.1 kA/m, respectively. In addition,more » the saturation polarization (P{sub s}), remanent polarization (P{sub r}), and electrical coercive field (E{sub c}) are observed in the range of 11.3–14.4 μC/cm{sup 2}, 2.9–4.8 μC/cm{sup 2}, and 56–59.5 kV/cm, respectively. The dielectric response in the presence of applied magnetic field, H{sub dc} ∼ 238.6 kA/m shows a high magnetocapacitance value ∼385% at frequency 100 kHz for CFO/PST composite film with x = 0.1. The maximum magnetoelectric voltage co-efficient value, α{sub E} ∼ 380 kV/(m × T) has been achieved in the composite films with x = 0.1. The influence of elastic/and or interfacial strain on multiferroic magnetoelectric properties is evident from the results.« less
