Title: Electrical properties and phase transition of Ba(Zr{sub 0.05}Ti{sub 0.95}){sub 1−x}(Fe{sub 0.5}Ta{sub 0.5}){sub x}O{sub 3} ceramics

Highlights: • Properties of of Ba(Zr{sub 0.05}Ti{sub 0.95}){sub 1−x}(Fe{sub 0.5}Ta{sub 0.5}){sub x}O{sub 3} ceramics were investigated. • Small amount of dopant produced a large change in dielectric and phase transition. • A phase diagram of Ba(Zr{sub 0.05}Ti{sub 0.95}){sub 1−x}(Fe{sub 0.5}Ta{sub 0.5}){sub x}O{sub 3} ceramics was proposed. • Dielectric tunability increased with increasing x concentration. - Abstract: In this work, properties of Ba(Zr{sub 0.05}Ti{sub 0.95}){sub 1−x}(Fe{sub 0.5}Ta{sub 0.5}){sub x}O{sub 3} ceramics with 0.00≤ x ≤0.07 were investigated. The ceramics were fabricated by a solid state reaction technique. X-ray diffraction analysis indicated that all samples exhibited single phase perovskite. Examination of the dielectric spectra revealed that the Fe and Ta additives promoted a diffuse phase transition, and the two phase transition temperatures, as observed in the dielectric curve of pure Ba(Zr{sub 0.05}Ti{sub 0.95})O{sub 3}, merged into a single phase transition temperature for higher x concentrations. The transformation was confirmed by ferroelectric measurements. In addition, the doped ceramics exhibited high relative dielectric tunability, especially for higher x concentration samples.
