Solid solutions of La and Ba modified (1-x)BiFeO3-xPbTiO3 were prepared by the mixed oxides method. The 10 at% of La3+ and Ba2+ substituents were utilized to substitute Bi3+ and Pb2+ ions respectively. These cations enter into the crystalline lattice to modify the structure and properties of BiFeO3-PbTiO3. The morphotropic phase boundary of (1-x)(Bi,La)FeO3-x(Pb,Ba)TiO3 (BLF-PBT) appears at x=0.4 accompanying by the rhombohedral-tetragonal phase transition. It is found that (1-x)BLF-xPBT reveals enhanced ferroelectric and magnetic properties in the vicinity of the MPB. The remnant polarization and magnetization achieve of 26 muC/cm and 0.06 emu/g, respectively. Our results indicated that (1-x)Bi(Fe,Ga)O3-xPbTiO3 is of the insulating and switchable multiferroics.

    ABSTRACT: Solid solutions of 0.45(Bi1−xLax)FeO3–0.55PbTiO3 (BLFPTx) for x = 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 were prepared by the mixed oxide method. BLFPTx showed the tetragonal perovskite structure of which the c/a ratio and Curie temperature decreased with the increase of La content. Significant dielectric and magnetic enhancements were observed for BLFPTx with La doping. The ferroelectric and ferromagnetic hysteresis loops revealed the maximum remanent polarization and magnetization of 28 μC/cm2 and 0.14 emu/g, respectively, for BLFPTx of x = 0.3. Results indicated that BLFPTx was of the insulating and switchable multiferroics with both ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties.

    ABSTRACT: Crystalline solutions of (1-x)( Bi,La )( Fe <sub>0.95</sub> Ga <sub>0.05</sub>) O <sub>3</sub>–x PbTiO <sub>3</sub> (BLGF–PT) have been fabricated with La concentrations of 0, 10, and 20 at. %. The BLGF–PT system has been found to have excellent insulation resistivity ≤10<sup>13</sup> Ω  cm . In addition, La substituent was found to decrease the coercive field, resulting in much improved dielectric and piezoelectric properties. A shift in the morphotropic phase boundary of BLGF–PT with increasing La content was identified for x=0.3, 0.4, and 0.43. We have achieved optimized dielectric constant, loss factor, Curie temperature, remnant polarization, and piezoelectric d<sub>33</sub> properties of 881, 0.037, 386 ° C , 30 μ C/cm <sup>2</sup> and 163 pC/N, respectively, for 0.6BLGF–0.4PT with 10 at. % La. These results clearly demonstrate that BLGF–PT is a competitive alternative piezoelectric material to Pb ( Zr,Ti ) O <sub>3</sub> with reduced lead content. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    ABSTRACT: Bismuth gallium based crystalline solutions, xBiGaO3–(1−x)PbTiO3 (BG–PT), were studied as novel material group of low lead content perovskite ceramics. X-ray diffraction (XRD) was utilized to investigate the crystal structure and phase evolution. A pure perovskite phase with tetragonal symmetry was obtained for x≤0.25. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) revealed that a first order solid-to-solid transformation occurs at 495 °C for x=0.2. The dielectric properties were investigated at room and elevated temperatures. Our results show that BG–PT is a good candidate high-temperature piezoelectric ceramic, with reduced lead content.
