Description

In this research work, the giant dielectric response in Ca${}_{1-3x/2}$Yb${}_x$Cu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ ($x$ = 0, 0.05, 0.15) ceramics prepared by a modified sol-gel method and sintered at 1100 ${}^{\circ}$C for 6 and 12 h were investigated as functions of temperature and frequency. A single phase of CaCu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ was obtained in all ceramic samples. Grain growth of Ca${}_{1-3x/2}$Yb${}_x$Cu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ ceramics was effectively inhibited by Yb${}^{3+}$ doping ions, which can be explained to the effect of solute drag of Yb${}^{3+}$ doping ions. High dielectric permittivity ($\sim$10${}^4$) and very low loss tangent ($\sim$0.01$-$0.02) at 1 kHz with good temperature stability of ${\varepsilon}^{\prime}$ ranging from -55 to 125 ${}^{\circ}$C were achieved in a Ca${}_{0.925}$Yb${}_{0.05}$Cu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ ceramic. Furthermore, the dielectric permittivity was found to be nearly independent of frequency (10${}^2 -$10${}^6$ Hz) and dc bias voltage (0$-$40 V). Interestingly, the grain boundary resistances of Ca${}_{1-3x/2}$Yb${}_x$Cu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ ceramics at room temperature were calculated from the activation energies and found to be $\sim$0.7$-$12.5 G$\Omega$.cm. The effect of annealing in O${}_2$ atmosphere on the dielectric properties was also investigated. It was suggested that variations in dielectric properties of Ca${}_{1-3x/2}$Yb${}_x$Cu${}_3$Ti${}_4$O${}_{12}$ ceramics due to Yb${}^{3+}$ substitution and annealing were associated with the electrical response at grain boundaries.
