Original Paper


Perovskite ceramics [Ba0.8Sr0.2]1−x[Bi1−yYy]xTi1−xFexO3 with x = 0.3 and 0.05 < y < 0.15 are synthesized by solid-state solution in order to study the effect of yttrium insertion on the physical properties of this material. The XRD patterns showed the formation of single tetragonal phase without any impurities. Using UV–Vis spectroscopy, the absorbance and reflectance are highlighted. In fact, we note a blueshift on wavelength and the energy band gap is increased with a high doping content. Besides, Raman spectra display a drop in mode intensities, which is followed by the rise of yttrium that can lead to a fluctuation in the atomic structure. Furthermore, the permittivity and loss dielectric are studied by impedance spectroscopy, revealing that both decrease with rising frequency indicating, as a result, a dielectric dispersion. Finally, the study of permittivity dielectric as a function of temperature exhibits the presence of G-type antiferromagnetic transition.
