Abstract: Lead zirconate titanate (PZT) was plasma sprayed onto various substrates of different character. Additionally, a free-standing body made by plasma spraying was investigated. X-ray diffraction analyses of a decomposition of the as-sprayed coating products detected components of the PT-PZ system as well as binary oxides—PbO and ZrO2. Due to the comparatively complex phase character, the Curie temperature monitored by DTA, had a smeared appearance without pronounced maxima. The corresponding electrical properties are comparable with those typically observed for CaTiO3, but are worse than the normal values of bulk PZT due to defective stoichiometry.
Keywords: plasma spraying; electroceramics; PZT; phase composition; permittivity
