Abstract

The crystal structural variations of (1 - x)ZnTa 2O 6-xTiO 2 ceramics sintered at 1250 °C for 2 h were investigated, and the relationship of these variations with the microwave dielectric properties were studied. Four types of crystal structures were identified with increasing x: tri-α-PbO 2, α-PbO 2, trirutile, and rutile. For x ≤ 0.2, single-phase solid solutions of the tri-α-PbO 2 structure were formed, whereas for x = 0.4, a mixture of two solid solution phases based on the α-PbO 2 and trirutile structures was obtained. For x = 0.5, a single phase of ZnTiTa 2O 8 with the trirutile structure was obtained, and for x ≥ 0.6, the ceramics formed single-phase solid solutions of the rutile structure. The microwave dielectric properties of the ceramics were changed by the crystal structural transitions: for x < 0.4, the phases of the tri-α-PbO 2 or α-PbO 2 structures exhibited ZnTa 2O 6-like dielectric behavior, while for x ≥ 0.4, the phases of the trirutile or rutile structure exhibited more TiO 2(rutile)-like behaviors as x increased. The ZnTiTa 2O 8 (x = 0.5) ceramics had a dielectric constant (k) of 46.2, a quality factor (Q × f) of 36,700 GHz, and a temperature coefficient of the resonant frequency (τ f) of +74 ppm/°C.
