Characterization of hexabarium 17-titanate and its effects on the dielectric properties of barium titanate ceramics

Hexabarium titanate; Barium titanate


"The initial goal of this Ph. D. program was related to the fabrication of high energy density multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) using coextrusion related techniques. A significant amount of work was initially performed on the rheological characterization of the coextrusion process, binder burnout for base metal electrode (BME) MLCCs, and co-firing. However, due to various reasons, this project could not be continued. A second phase having a dendritic morphology was constantly observed in MLCCs samples fabricated by both coextrusion and tape casting methods based on a commercial X7R powder. At this point the focus of my research was changed to the characterization of this second phase and its effect on the dielectric properties of the BaTiO₃ ceramics."--General Introduction, page 1.
