Abstract

Effects of Praseodymium doping on the ferroelectric properties of Bi4Ti3O12 were investigated using dense ceramics from room temperature to 730 °C. DRX and XPS studies shows that the structure can accept only 10% of praseodymium without the precipitation of second phases. Thermoelectric analysis and ferroelectric hysteresis measurements were performed and show that the incorporation of praseodymium modified the transition temperature Tc and slightly the polarization values. The incorporation of praseodymium resulted in a variation in the permittivity and in the remanent polarization (2Pr ). The polarization characteristics in the samples doping were different to Bi4Ti3O12.
