Pure and Ag-doped BaTiO 3 nanopowders were prepared by spray pyrolysis. Precursor powders, prepared from a spray solution with citric acid and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) as chelating agents, had large, hollow particles irrespective of Ag doping. Both pure and Ag-doped powders had partially aggregated particles after post-treatment at 900°C that could be easily milled to nanoparticles. The mean sizes of the pure and Ag-doped BaTiO 3 particles were 75 and 91 nm, respectively. The Ag-doped particles were mainly of cubic BaTiO 3 crystal structure, with small Ag phases observed. High-density BaTiO 3 pellets were formed by sintering the powders at the low temperature of 1000°C. The silver was uniformly distributed in a tetragonal BaTiO 3 phase without phase separation in the doped pellet. The dielectric constants of the pellets formed from the pure and Ag-doped BaTiO 3 powders were 1826 and 2400, respectively.
