Charge-collection (CC) current was measured at a single grain boundary, which exhibited positive temperature coefficient of resistivity (PTCR) effects, in 0.1-mol%-Nb-doped BaTiO3. The CC current systematically reversed across the grain boundary above the Curie point, which indicated the presence of a double Schottky barrier (DSB) at the grain boundary. In contrast, the CC current was constant across the grain boundary below the Curie temperature. The result obtained from the CC current measurement agrees with the classical DSB model in donordoped BaTiO3, indicating the PTCR effects.
