ABSTRACT In this study, in order to develop the composition ceramics for ultrasonic sensor application, Pb0.985Bi0.01(Co1/2W1/2)0.03(Ni1/3Nb2/3)0.09(ZrxTi1-x)0.88O3+0.25wt% CuO (abbreviated as PCW-PNN-PZT) system ceramics were prepared with the variations of x and then their phase microstructure, piezoelectric and dielectric characteristics were investigated with the variations of x. The compositions near the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) appeared when x = 0.495. Moreover, the PCW-PNN-PZT ceramics could be sintered at low temperature of 920°C by adding sintering aids CuO. At sintering temperature of 920°C and x = 0.495 specimen, the density (ρ), electromechanical coupling factor(kp), dielectric constant (ϵr), mechanical quality (Qm) and piezoelectric constant (d33) piezoelectric figure of merit (d33·g33) indicated the optimal value of 7.94 g/cm3. 0.65, 1959, 356, 486 pC/N, and 15.56 [pm2/N], respectively, suitable for ultrasonic sensor application. The CuO was proved to lower the sintering temperature of piezoelectric ceramics due to the effects of PbO and CuO liquid phase.
