Dielectrics (Zn,Mg)TiO3, having a high dielectric constant and a near zero temperature coefficient of resonant frequency are promising materials for microwave applications. In this work, Bi2O3 was added to (Zn,Mg)TiO3 as a low-temperaturesintering dopant. The addition of Bi2O3 significantly improved the densification of (Zn,Mg) TiO3, which were densified below 1000°C. In addition, the decomposition temperature of (Zn,Mg)TiO3 increased as the magnesium substitution increased. Microwave dielectric properties of (Zn,Mg)TiO 3 ceramics depend on crystalline structure. By properly adjusting the amount of magnesium, a small temperature coefficient of resonant frequency was obtained for (Zn,Mg)TiO3 dielectrics.
