Abstract

ZnTiO3 was synthesized by employing the solid state reaction between ZnO and TiO2 powders mixed in the 1:1 molar ratio. The dielectric properties such as dielectric constant (εr) and dielectric loss (tan δ) have been studied in the frequency range 200 Hz to 5MHz by varying the temperature from 40oC to 400oC in steps of 10oC. High value of dielectric constant ~ 50 is observed which can be suitable for high charge storage capacitor applications. The optical properties were also studied using FTIR and UV-Visible Spectra. The band gap was calculated from UV-Visible Spectra.

Keywords

ZnTiO3, Dielectric Constant (εr), Optical Properties, AC-Conductivity
