Summary

In order to archive transparent PLZT Ceramics, green bodies have been prepared by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) process. the submicron PLZT powder was produced by an improved mixed oxide route. Compared to the strongly varying optical quality of transparent ceramics by using cold pressed green bodies the number and size of pores could significantly be reduced. the optical and electrical properties of the samples are presented and discussed. Additionally dielectric constant and polarisation properties of the samples are shown in detail and compared with other compositions and properties of typical ferroelectric ceramics. the results show that EPD is a very suitable method for the production of green bodies with any size, complex shapes and highest optical properties.
