Abstract : The purpose of this project is to evelop new or improved manufacturing methods for large scale production of ferroelectric or piezoelectric ceramic materials such as titanates, zirconates niobates, and tantalates. A major requirement is high purity (99.95%). The accomplishments include the operation of a pilot plant, the chemical and x-ray analyses of its product and the ceramic processing of the powders. The synthesis of BaTiO3 in the pilot plant was a successful scale-up of the bench scale runs. Product analysis shows it to be within allowable impurity tolerances and is stoichiometric within analytical detection limits. (Author)
