Abstract: We demonstrated the superior electrocaloric effect (ECE) in BaTiO 3 multilayer structure. The sample fabricated by tape-casting process has 120 effective ferroelectric layers with average layer thickness of 1.7 μm. The ferroelectric hysteresis loops were measured in the temperature range from 30 to 180 °C, and then the temperature dependences of ECE adiabatic temperature change and heat absorption were obtained according to Maxwell relation. A peak ECE adiabatic temperature change of 0.027 K/V and heat absorption of 0.36 J/g were observed near the ferroelectric phase transition at 125 °C under V max=25 V. The BaTiO 3 thick film can sustain an external electric field (>500 kV/cm) several times higher than bulk ferroelectric ceramics (∼30 kV/cm). Although the EC coefficient of BaTiO 3 is much lower than lead-based ferroelectric ceramics, the ultrahigh working electric field endows it a large ECE, higher than that of most reported lead-based ferroelectric ceramics. In addition, the lead-free composition provides it a promising future in solid-state cooling technology.
