Abstract

(Ba0.85Ca0.15)(Zr0.1Ti0.9)O3 piezoelectric ceramics were prepared by a simple sol-gel method. The surface morphology and structure were characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Furthermore, based on the analysis of dielectric temperature spectrum with different frequency, (Ba0.85Ca0.15)(Zr0.1Ti0.9)O3 ceramics have been found to exhibit promising dielectric temperature performance, which can be attributed to their unique structure. This research may provide new insights into engineering application
