Title: Dielectric spectroscopy of Dy{sub 2}O{sub 3} doped (K{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5})NbO{sub 3} piezoelectric ceramics

We report the dielectric properties of (K{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5})NbO{sub 3} ceramics doped with x wt% of Dy{sub 2}O{sub 3} (x= 0.0-1.5 wt%) using the broadband dielectric spectroscopy. The X-ray diffraction studies showed the formation of perovskite structure signifying that Dy{sub 2}O{sub 3} diffuse into the KNN lattice. Samples doped with x > 0.5 wt% exhibit smaller grain size and lower relative densities. The dielectric properties of KNN ceramics doped with Dy{sub 2}O{sub 3} are enhanced by increasing the Dy{sup 3+} content; among the compositions studied, x = 0.5 wt% exhibited the highest dielectric constant and lowest loss at 1MHz over the temperature range of 30°C to 400°C. All the samples exhibit maximum dielectric constant at the Curie temperature (∼ 326°C) and a small peak in the dielectric constant at around 165°C is due to a structural phase transition.
