Abstract: The electrical properties of (Bi0.5Na0.5)0.94Ba0.06TiO3 ceramics have been improved greatly by adding some CeO2. At room temperature, the sample containing 0.4wt% CeO2 shows a stronger ferroelectricity and a quite good performance: relatively large remanent polarization Pr = 37.7μC/cm2, relatively high coercive field Ec = 37.1kV/cm, high piezoelectric constant (d33 = 152pC/N), high coupling factor (Kp = 34%), enhanced dielectric constant (εr = 652) and low dissipation factor (tgδ = 1.2%) at 1kHz. X-ray diffraction shows that CeO2 diffuses into the lattice of (Bi1/2Na1/2)TiO3 to form a solid solution during sintering, but does not change co-existence of tetragonal and rhombohedral phases in (Bi1/2Na1/2)TiO3-BaTiO3 during sintering. Meanwhile, scanning electron microscope observation indicates that a small amount of CeO2 affects the microstructure.
