In this work, the formation of Pb(Zr1-xTix)O3 solid solutions with composition near the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) using the conventional ceramic method have been studied by changing the thermal conditions such as temperature ramp rate and isothermal times during the calcination treatment performed between 700 and 900 °C. The perovskite phase formation and morphology of undoped Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 (abbreviated PZT) and doped new material Pb0.98Gd0.02[(Zr0.52Ti0.48)0.98 (Mg1/3Nb2/3)0.01 (Ni1/3Sb2/3)0.01]O3 (abbreviated PZT-PGMNNS) specimens have been examined by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) while the thermal evolution of the initial precursor was followed by TG-DTA. So the results of these studies have been discussed.
Key words: Pb(Zr1-xTix)O3 / Morphotropic phase boundary / Calcination treatment / Perovskite phase
