Barium titanate (BaTiO3, BT)-bismuth magnesium titanate (Bi(Mg1/2Ti1/2)O3, BMT)-bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3, BF) solid solution ceramics were prepared using a conventional solid-state synthesis, and their piezoelectric properties and microstructure were investigated. Strain - electric field curves of the 0.3BT-0.1BMT-0.6BF ceramics with a single perovskite phase were ferroelectric butterfly-like curves. A strain maximum / electric field maximum (S max/Emax) was 330 pm/V. Transmission electron microscopy revealed ferroelectric-like domain structure in the 0.3BT-0.1BMT-0.6BF ceramics.
