Abstract

Phase stability, sinterability, and microwave dielectric properties of Bi2W2O9 ceramics and their cofireability with Ag, Cu, and Au electrodes have been investigated. Single-phase Bi2W2O9 powder was synthesized by solid-state reaction in air at 800°C for 3 days. X-ray powder diffraction data show Bi2W2O9 to have an orthorhombic crystal structure described by the noncentrosymmetric space group Pna21, with lattice parameters a=5.4401(8), b=5.4191(8), c=23.713(4) Å. Ceramics fired at temperatures up to 865°C remain single-phase but above this temperature ferroelectric Bi2WO6 appears as a secondary phase. The measured relative permittivity of Bi2W2O9 ceramics increases continuously from 28.6 to 40.7 for compacts fired between 860° and 885°C. The bulk relative permittivity of Bi2W2O9 corrected for porosity was calculated as 41.3. Bi2W2O9 ceramics fired up to 875°C exhibit moderate quality factors, Q×fr, ∼7500–7700 GHz and negative temperature coefficient of resonant frequency, ∼−54 to −63 ppm/°C. Chemical compatibility experiments show Bi2W2O9 ceramics to react with both Ag and Cu electrodes, but to form good contacts with Au electrodes.
