Abstract: Ferroelectric strontium barium niobate (SBN)-doped Na2O-B2O3-SiO2 (NBS) glass nanocomposites were prepared by dispersing sol-gel-derived SBN powder into fused NBS glass. Their structures were characterized by X-ray diffractometry and Raman spectroscopy. The dielectric constants were measured as functions of frequency and temperature using an impedance analyzer. The ferroelectric-to-paraelectric-phase transition was studied by differential scanning calorimetric analysis. Our results revealed that the embedded SBN has lower phase transition temperature and phase transition heat than those of SBN bulk materials. Their activation energy, however, is larger than that of SBN ultra-fine powders. Pure tetragonal-phase SBN nanocomposites can be obtained at annealing temperatures of 750°-1000°C. Their dielectric constants are ∼32-46 and ∼20-25 at low frequencies and radio frequencies, respectively, and the loss tangent is <0.1 at room temperature in the radio frequencies range. Our studies suggested that additional reduction in the loss properties must be made before these systems can be considered for application as microwave dielectric materials.
