Synthesis and Charge Density Analysis of BaTiO3

S. Sasikumar, R. Saravanan

Perovskite BaTiO3 ceramics were prepared by the solid state reaction technique. Structural and surface morphological properties were explored using the XRD and SEM techniques. The results of structural characterization show the formation of BaTiO3 sample in a single phase without any impurity. It was found to crystallize in a tetragonal symmetry with a P4mm space group. The charge density distribution of BaTiO3 has been constructed using the maximum entropy method. Scanning electron microscope images were used to find the aggregate particle size. The optical absorption analysis was done using a UV-Visible spectrophotometer.
