Abstract:

Effects of powder synthesis and processing parameters on non-stoichiometric CaZrO3 with added SrO and BaO were studied in order to optimize microstructure and microwave dielectric properties. Nitrate precursors of constituent oxides were in aqueous solutions to give the desired composition. The effect of solution pH 1-10 on powder characteristics and gel formation in the system were examined. Optimally high surface areas 31.4 sq.m.g, small particle size 0.05 microns, and uniform, dense microstructure were obtained only for the acidic ph approx. 1 powders. Ceramic parts with uniform microstructures, high dielectric constants epsilon r 30 - 35, and high Q 4000 were prepared from these powders.
