Abstract

Barium titanate has been used as a capacitor dielectric since World War II. For this purpose, it is used as a sintered, densified ceramic. The various stages of sintering of numerous pure compounds, including barium titanate, have been studied under various conditions. The effects of additives and processing variations upon sintering of Alumina have been studied; however, the analogous determinations have not been done for barium titanate. The author felt that such information would be valuable in the further development of barium titanate dielectrics.
