Structural studies on the addition characteristics of Nb ions to BaTiO3 solid solutions were performed by XRD and SEM/EDS technique. The X-ray diffraction peaks of the (111), (200) and (002) planes of Nb-doped BaTiO3 solid solutions with different mole% of Nb were analyzed. We also investigated the relationship between the dielectric and structural properties of Nb-doped BaTiO3. The transition temperatures of BaTiO3 solid solution doped with 0.5mole%Nb and 1.0 mole%Nb were ~116°C and ~87°C, respectively, which were found to be shifted to very low temperature from the transition temperature of pure BaTiO3 (about 125°C). As a result of analysis of 1/K versus T and ln[(1/K)-(1/Km) versus (T-Tm)] of the two compositions used in this experiment, the diffusivity slightly differs from that of pure BaTiO3 at temperatures above Curie temperature. And this characteristic was analyzed by applying the modified Curie-Weiss law.
