The present work, Cr doped ZnO nanoceramics abbreviated as Zn1-xCrxO (x = 0, 0.01, 0.03) synthesized by mechanical alloying. The structural, morphological, dielectric and optical properties of the synthesized samples were studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopic analysis (FE-SEM), UV–Visible spectroscopy (UV–Vis) and Impedance analyzer respectively. The structural parameters were measured by Rietveld method. The result shows the formation of single phase nanoceramics with hexagonal wurtzite structure with space group P63mc. The crystallite size was found to decrease with increase in Cr concentration (~ 20 nm) and broadening of XRD peak exists in the samples. FE-SEM result shows that incorporation of Cr changes the surface morphology of ZnO. The band gap energy (Eg) at room temperature was measured using Tauc relation and was found to decreases with increase in Cr concentration. The dielectric constant (ε) value of ZnO decreases with Cr doping and with increase in concentration the peak shifted towards higher temperature region
