Abstract: Here we report the structural, dielectric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, and magnetic properties of zirconium-doped 0.67BiFe(0.97)Ga(0.03)O(3)-0.33BaZr (x) Ti1-x O-3 (BFG-BZT) lead-free ceramics. Structural investigations reveal that the doped Zr4+ ions (up to x = 0.15) can be fully incorporated into the host lattice. Dielectric measurements demonstrate that with increasing Zr4+ content, both the ferroelectric Curie temperature T (C) and the dielectric constant decrease monotonously, and that the dielectric constant exhibits relaxor behaviors upon Zr4+ doping. At the same time, the remnant polarization P (r) increases and then decreases, with the maximum P (r) similar to 26 A mu C/cm(2) for x = 0.025. One of the noteworthy results is that the remanent magnetic moment at room temperature increases up to 0.17 emu/g with increasing x from 0 to 0.15, which is attributed to enhanced lattice distortions due to Zr4+ doping. The coexistence of strong ferroelectricity and ferromagnetism at room temperature implies that the BFG-BZT could be potential candidate materials for multiferroic device applications.
