|Abstract:||This paper reports on the benefits gathered from a proper colloidal dispersion/deagglomeration of a Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 (BST) powder in water followed by spraying the aqueous suspension against liquid nitrogen to obtain homogeneous granules. The density of green compacts derived from the freeze granulated (FG) powder was compared with that of compacts prepared from the same starting BST powder but non-granulated (NG). The sintering ability of the greens and the density, mechanical and functional properties of the obtained ceramics sintered at various temperatures properties were shown to be strongly enhanced by the freeze granulation step. Freeze granulation enabled decreasing the optimal sintering temperature for 50 degrees C, and enhanced all the relevant measured properties, which showed a good correlation with sintered density. Maximum values of dielectric constant (epsilon(rmax) = 5087) and dielectric loss (tan delta = 0.009) were measured at the phase transition temperature (T-c = -3 degrees C) and at a constant frequency of 10 kHz for the FG BST ceramics sintered at 1250 degrees C, which also showed a flatter temperature-dependent dielectric profile.
