Abstract

The dielectric and electromechanical properties of LiNbO3-modified (1-x) [0.91Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-0.09Ba0.70Ca0.30TiO3]-xLiNbO3 (abbreviated as (BiNa)TiO3-(BaCa)TiO3-LN) lead-free piezoceramics were investigated. The electrical properties revealed that the addition of LiNbO3 (LN) induces a phase transition from a non-ergodic relaxor to an ergodic relaxor in the (BiNa)TiO3-(BaCa)TiO3-LN system. A large electrostrain of ∼0.418% with a normalized strain of ∼690 pm V-1 at 6 kV mm-1 was observed at the coexistence of the non-ergodic relaxor and ergodic relaxor phases for LN 0.020, where a field-assisted reversible phase transition between metastable ferroelectric and stable ergodic relaxor phases occurs. Subsequently, a gradual enhancement in the temperature stability of the dielectric constant was observed. At 3 mol.% LN, a nearly constant temperature and a frequency-invariant permittivity of ϵr ∼ 3300 over a broad temperature range of 147 °C-306 °C was observed along with small losses from room temperature up to 400 °C.
