Microwave processing of SrBi2Nb2O9 ferroelectric ceramics was targeted in the current work. In particular, Curie temperature, dielectric constant, dielectric loss and dc conductivity were studied for microwave sintered SrBi2Nb2O9 ferroelectric ceramics in the range 1050-1200 °C. The space charge dielectric relaxation was found noticeable in all sintered samples and electrical properties like dielectric constant, loss and dc conductivity were significantly affected due to this dielectric relaxation. An optimum processing condition was targeted by investigating frequency and temperature dependent dielectric responses along with dc conductivity. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.
