BaTiO3 nanoparticles of a controlled size and structure are synthesised for an electroluminescent device application developed by a collaborator. This device requires BaTiO3 nanoparticles, a narrow size distribution and improved dielectric constant. An experimental study of the material’s dielectric constant reports an increase when the particle size approaches 70 nm [1]. This property will be characterized and approached theoretically. Modelling will be performed to understand this phenomenon and verifying its reproducibility. [1] Wada S., Yasuno H. and Hoshina T., J. Appl. Phys. Vol. 42 (2003) pp.6188
