The structural, dielectric, electrocaloric, and energy storage properties of lead-free Ba0.90Ca0.10Zr0.15Ti0.85O3

Abstract : Lead-free ferroelectric materials with Electrocaloric Effect (ECE) and recoverable energy (Wrec) represent a major breakthrough in the technological race for manufacturing low-cost and eco-friendly smart multifunctional devices. Here, guided by the benefits resulting from successive ferroelectric-ferroelectric (F-F) and ferroelectricpseudo cubic (F-PC) transitions including broad operational temperature span, lead-free Ba0.90Ca0.10Zr0.15Ti0.85O3 (BCZT) ferroelectric ceramic located near the phase convergence region was prepared using the conventional solid-state solution. In this study, the systematic investigation of structural and microstructural properties via X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), temperature-dependence Raman spectroscopy and dielectric properties confirm the formation of a pure perovskite material which undergoes consecutive R3c-R3m, R3m-Amm2, Amm2-P4mm (F-F) phase transitions followed by (F-PC) transition in a wide temperature range centered around room temperature (RT). Polarization-Electric field (P-E) measurements, revealed the coexistence of Positive Electro-Caloric Effect (PECE) and Negative Electro-Caloric Effect (NECE) in a wide temperature span of [-40 degrees C, 95 degrees C]. More interestingly, we reached a large absolute temperature change (Delta T) and EC coefficient (xi) values of (5.505 degrees C, 1.847 KmmkV-1), (0.861 degrees C, 0.289 KmmkV-1) and (1.897 degrees C, 0.637 Kmm kV-1) registered respectively at about -5, 42.5 and 74.5 degrees C under an electric field of 29.80 kVcm- 1. This work will promote further studies on lead-free BCZT ceramics towards multifunctional environmentally-friendly material promising for solid-state cooling technology.
