Microwave dielectric properties of the complex perovskite compound CuO-doped 0.95Ba(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.05BaZrO 3 ceramics have been investigated using the conventional solid state method. Copper oxide effectively lowers the sintering temperature of 0.95Ba(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.05BaZrO3 ceramics as a sintering aid. Ordering of structures was not observed at sintering temperatures from 1240 to 1360°C. The dielectric constant (εr) saturated at a value of 38-40 from 1270 to 1360°C. The Q × f values of 15000-70000 (at 7 GHz) can be obtained in all cases when the sintering temperatures are in the range of 1240-1360°C. The temperature coefficient of the resonant frequency τf was independent of the sintering temperature. An εr value of 39.7, a Q × f value of 70000 (at 7 GHz), and a τf value of 17 ppm/°C were obtained for 1 wt % CuO-doped 0.95Ba(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O 3-0.05BaZrO3 ceramics sintered at 1360°C for 2h.
