Abstract

Strontium bismuth titanate (Sr2Bi4Ti5O18) powders comprising crystallites of average sizes in the range of 94-1400 nm were prepared via citrate-assisted sol-gel route. With an increase in the average crystallite size there was a change in the lattice parameters and shift in the Raman vibration modes. Second harmonic signal (532 nm) intensity of the Sr2Bi4Ti5O18 powders increased with the increase in the average crystallite size and the maximum intensity obtained in the reflection mode was 1.4 times as high as that of the powdered KH2PO4. Piezo Force Microscopic analyses carried out on isolated crystallite of size 74 nm, established a single domain nature with the coercive field as high as 347 kV/cm. There was a systematic increase in the d(33) value with an increase in the size of the isolated crystallites and a high piezoelectric coefficient of similar to 27 pm/V was obtained from an isolated crystallite of size 480 nm.
