Synthesis and characterizations of ultra-low sintering temperature BaTiO3/BaO–ZnO–Bi2O3–B2O3 glass ceramic composite
Novel ultra-low temperature co-fired ceramic composites consisting of BaTiO3 and BaO–ZnO–Bi2O3–B2O3 (BZBB) glass were successfully produced under 500 °C, and their sintering behavior, phase composition, microstructure and dielectric properties as functions of sintering temperature were investigated. The XRD and SEM results showed that there was no reaction between the glass and the ceramic but the Bi24B2O39 was formed in all samples during sintering process. This indicates that the BZBB glass not only acts as sintering aids but also involves in crystal phase formation. The composites with 60–90 wt% of BZBB glass frit could be densified at a sintering temperature of 450 °C for 30 min, and exhibited widely adjustable dielectric constant (35–133) and acceptable dielectric loss (<0.012). In addition, the composites showed good compatibility with Ag electrode, which suggests their suitability for various dielectric applications with ultra-low sintering temperature.
