PZT based piezoelectric ceramics obtained by doping with various levels of Sr2+ and La3+, designated as PSLZT, were prepared by conventional processing techniques. The effects of Sr2+ and La3+ additions, and that of the Zr/Ti ratio on microstructure, on phase constitution, and on the dielectric and piezoelectric properties were investigated. XRD data revealed that all PSLZT compositions had perovskite structure in which increasing Sr and/or decreasing Zr/Ti ratio increased the tetragonality. In PSLZT ceramics the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) appeared as regions extending from Zr/Ti ratio of 52/48 to 58/42. Among all compositions studied, the PSLZT ceramic having 5 at% Sr2+ and 1 at% La3+ with a Zr/Ti ratio of 54/46 exhibited a peak piezoelectric strain coefficient of d(33) = 640 pC/N with attending dielectric and electromechanical parameters K-33(T) = 1800, k(p) = 0.56, Q(m) = 70, and tan delta = 1.55%.

Thermoluminescence properties of Al doped ZnO nanoparticles
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-15)
ZnO nanoparticles doped with aluminum (AZO nanoparticles) were investigated using low temperature thermoluminescence (TL) and structural characterization experiments. TL experiments were performed on AZO nanoparticles in the temperature range of 10-300 K. TL curve presented one intensive peak around 123 K and two overlapped peaks to intensive peak around 85 and 150 K for heating rate of 0.1 K/s. Curve fitting and initial rise methods were used to find the activation energies of associated trapping centers. ...
Hydrothermal synthesis of Yb-doped BiFeO3 crystallites and their structural, magnetic and electrical properties
Özdilek, Çağrı (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
© 2020 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.The influence of Yb doping on the structural, magnetic and electrical properties of bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) was investigated. Well-crystallized BiFeO3 (BFO) and Yb-doped BiFeO3 powders (Bi1-xYbxFeO3: x = 0, 0.03, 0.05, 0.1) were successfully synthesized via a typical hydrothermal method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) revealed that powders have a distorted rhombohedral structure with a space group of R3c. Field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) studies indica...
Facile control of hydroxyapatite particle morphology by utilization of calcium carbonate templates at room temperature
Oral, Çağatay M.; Çalışkan, Arda; Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Hydroxyapatite (HAp, Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2)) particles are widely used in orthopedic applications due to their chemical resemblance to the inorganic component of bone tissue. Since physical and chemical properties of HAp particles influence bone regeneration, various synthesis techniques were developed to precisely control the particle properties. However, most of these techniques required high reaction temperatures, which limited the spectrum of obtained HAp particle morphologies. In this study, ellipsoidal,...
Catalytic effect of alkaline earth oxides on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride
ÇAMURLU, HASAN ERDEM; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; SEVİNÇ, NACİ (Elsevier BV, 2009-08-01)
Effect of MgO, CaO and BaO on carbothermic formation of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) was investigated. B(2)O(3-)C mixtures containing alkaline earth oxide additives were reacted at 1500 degrees C for 30-120 min in nitrogen atmosphere. Formed phases in the reaction products were determined by powder-XRD analyses, and amounts of the constituents were determined by chemical analyses. Particle size and morphology of the formed h-BN powders were examined by FESEM and particle size distributions were determined...
Microtensile Bond Strength of Self-Adhesive Resin-Based Dental Cement to Bleached Enamel
Tamam, Evsen; Keskin, Selda; Ucatasli, Mine Betuel (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
This study investigated the effectiveness of bleaching agents on the micro tensile bond strength (mu TBS) of self-adhesive luting cement and enamel. A total of 126 samples were prepared from the labial surfaces of permanent human maxillary central incisors and assigned into three groups with 42 samples each as: control, enamel bleached with 10% hydrogen peroxide (HP), and enamel bleached with 10% carbamide peroxide (CP). Rely X Unicem (R) (3 M, ESPE) was used as self-adhesive resin cement. The total testing...
