## Abstract

Dielectric capacitors with ultrafast charge-discharge rates are extensively used in electrical and electronic systems. To meet the growing demand for energy storage applications, researchers have devoted significant attention to dielectric ceramics with excellent energy storage properties. As a result, the awareness of the importance of the pulsed discharge behavior of dielectric ceramics and conducting characterization studies has been raised. However, the temperature stability of pulsed discharge behavior, which is significant for pulsed power applications, is still not given the necessary consideration. Here, we systematically investigate the microstructures, energy storage properties and discharge behaviors of nanograined (1-*x*)BaTiO_{3}-*x*NaNbO_{3} ceramics prepared by a two-step sintering method. The 0.60BaTiO_{3}-0.40NaNbO_{3} ceramics with relaxor ferroelectric characteristics possess an optimal discharge energy density of 3.07 J cm^{-3}, a high energy efficiency of 92.6%, an ultrafast discharge rate of ^{-3}. In addition to stable energy storage properties in terms of frequency, fatigue and temperature, the 0.60BaTiO_{3}-0.40NaNbO_{3} ceramics exhibit temperature-stable power density, thereby illustrating their significant potential for power electronics and pulsed power applications.

## INTRODUCTION

Dielectric capacitors, as fundamental components in high-power energy storage and pulsed power systems, play an important role in many applications, including hybrid electric vehicles, portable electronics, medical devices and electromagnetic weapons, due to their high power density, ultrafast charge-discharge rates and long lifetimes^{[1-6]}. However, most current commercial polymer dielectric capacitors and multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) possess somewhat low energy densities of < 1-2 J cm^{-3}, which results in them occupying relatively large volumes and/or weights in devices^{[7-10]}. The development of third-generation semiconductors and the need for device miniaturization have resulted in an urgent demand for high-energy-density dielectric capacitors^{[1,11]}.

Under an applied voltage, the dielectric materials in dielectric capacitors polarize to store energy^{[1,12,13]}. Their energy storage properties can be calculated through polarization-electric field (*P-E*) loops, namely, , and *η* = *W*_{d}/*W*_{c}, where *W*_{c} and *W*_{d} are the charge and discharge energy density, respectively, *P*_{max} and *P*_{r} are the maximum and remnant polarization, respectively, and *η *is the energy efficiency^{[14-16]}. Among all dielectric materials, relaxor ferroelectrics with high *P*_{max}, low *P*_{r}, high breakdown strength (*E*_{b}) and slim *P-E* loops have been investigated extensively for their excellent energy storage properties^{[17-22]}. The polar nanoregions in relaxor ferroelectrics can switch rapidly under an applied electric field, which significantly reduces loss and results in high *η*^{[23-28]}. In addition, the excellent fatigue and temperature stability of the pulsed discharge behavior and energy storage properties are highly desirable for dielectric capacitors operating in harsh environments, i.e., aerospace fields and oil-well drilling^{[29-32]}. Many strategies have been utilized to enhance the temperature stability of dielectric materials in recent years, including multiscale optimization^{[27]}, composite strategy design^{[28]}, unmatched temperature range design^{[33]} and special sintering methods^{[34]}. However, the temperature stability of pulsed discharge behavior is not given sufficient attention in current research into dielectric materials.

In this study, we prepare nanograined (1-*x*)BaTiO_{3}-*x*NaNbO_{3} ceramics, which possess relaxor ferroelectric characteristics with a good *P-E* relationship (high *P*_{max}, low *P*_{r} and slim *P-E* loops) and high *E*_{b}, using a solid-state reaction method. The 0.60BaTiO_{3}-0.40NaNbO_{3} ceramics exhibit an optimal *W*_{d} of 3.07 J cm^{-3} and a high *η *of 92.6% under 38.1 MV m^{-1} at ambient temperature. Stable energy storage properties in terms of frequency (0.1-100 Hz), fatigue (10^{6} cycles) and temperature (25-120 °C) are also achieved. Moreover, the ceramics possess an ultrafast discharge rate of 39 ns and a high power density of 100 MW cm^{-3}. The variation of the power density is less than 15% from 25 to 140 °C. All these results suggest that 0.60BaTiO_{3}-0.40NaNbO_{3} ceramics are ideal candidates for energy storage applications in pulsed power systems.

^{[35,36]}(all samples were heated to 1250-1350 °C for 1-10 min and then cooled down to 1100-1150 °C for 3-5 h).

The ambient-temperature X-ray diffraction profiles of the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics were obtained using a Rigaku 2500 X-ray diffractometer (Rigaku, Tokyo, Japan) with Cu Kα radiation and λ = 1.5418 Å. The surface microstructures of the ceramics after thermally etching at 1050 °C for 0.5 h were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM, MERLIN VP Compact, Zeiss Ltd., Germany) at 15 kV. To measure the ferroelectric properties and pulsed discharge behaviors, the compact ceramics were polished down to *P-E* loops were measured using a TF ANALYZER 2000E ferroelectric measurement system (aixACCT Systems GmbH, Aachen, Germany) under different frequencies (0.1-100 Hz) and various temperatures

## RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

The ambient-temperature X-ray diffraction profiles of the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics are displayed in Figure 1. All samples exhibit typical perovskite structures with traces of a Ba_{6}Ti_{7}Nb_{9}O_{42} secondary phase _{6}Ti_{7}Nb_{9}O_{42} phases are displayed in Supplementary Table 1 and are less than 5% in all (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics. The (200) peaks between 45° and 46° without splitting suggest that all samples are mainly pseudocubic phases at room temperature. The cell parameters of *x*)BT-*x*NN^{+} (1.39 Å) is smaller than that of Ba^{2+} (1.61 Å). The SEM images of the surface and cross-section microstructures of the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics are displayed in Figure 2 and Supplementary Figure 2. There are no obvious pores in the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics, suggesting that all samples possess high relative density. The grain size distributions [Supplementary Figure 3] are counted by the Feret diameters of more than 250 grains from the SEM images, and they show that all the ceramics possess nanograins with average grain sizes of 180-280 nm. The grain size tends to increase with NN content and the distribution moves toward larger sizes. Generally, fine grains are conducive to achieving high *E*_{b} and *η*. The elemental distribution results of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics are shown in Supplementary Figure 4, where it can be seen that all the elements are uniformly distributed in the ceramics.

The temperature-dependent (150-300 °C) dielectric properties of the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics were measured at various frequencies [Figure 3] and indicated prototypical relaxor ferroelectric characteristics. The dielectric constants of all the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics at room temperature are ~1000-1200 and the _{6}Ti_{7}Nb_{9}O_{42}_{6}Ti_{7}Nb_{9}O_{42} phases may not significantly affect the dielectric characteristics of the ceramics. It can be found that the dielectric constant and the Curie temperature increase with increasing NN content. All the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics exhibit low dielectric loss of less than 0.012 between -100 and 200 °C. Generally, the modified Curie-Weiss law, *ε *– 1/*ε*_{m} = (*T* - *T*_{m})^{γ}/*C*,*ε *and *ε*_{m }are the dielectric constant and maximum value of *ε*, respectively, *T* and *T*_{m } are the corresponding temperatures, *C* is the Curie constant and γ is used to describe the degree of diffuseness. The γ value varies from one for typical ferroelectrics to two for ideal relaxor ferroelectrics^{[24,37]}. The fitted γ values of all the ceramics are shown in Figure 4 and are between 1.686 and 1.766 at 1 MHz, thereby manifesting strong relaxation behavior. This strong relaxation behavior causes the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics to respond rapidly under an applied electric field, resulting in high *η*.

The unipolar *P-E* loops of all ceramics measured at 25 °C and 20 MV m^{-1} are shown in Figure 5A, with all ceramics exhibiting slim *P-E* loops. Among these, the 0.55BT-0.45NN ceramics possess the largest *P*_{max} and *P*_{max} - *P*_{r} values [Figure 5B], leading to high *W*_{d}. However, due to the lower *P*_{r}, relatively larger *P*_{max} - *P*_{r} value and the highest *E*_{b }[Figure 5B and C], a *W*_{d} of 3.07 J cm^{-3} and a high *η *of 92.6% are achieved in the ^{-1}, which are the optimum energy storage properties among all the *x*)BT-*x*NN*E*_{b} between 32.7 and 38.1 MV m^{-1} and high *η* between 87.5% and 93.0%. The corresponding current-field curves of the (1-*x*)BT-*x*NN ceramics are shown in *η*. Noticeably, the *η *of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics decreases slightly with increasing *E* and shows a slight variation of < 4% within the whole electric field range tested, which is conducive to high *η *energy storage applications.

Given that the stability of the energy storage properties for dielectric materials is crucial in practical applications, the frequency, fatigue and temperature stabilities of the energy storage properties for the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics are characterized in Figure 7. The *P*_{max} of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics only decreases from 15.1 to 14.3 µC cm^{-2} with increasing frequency from 0.1 to 100 Hz, while the *P*_{r} remains almost unchanged [Figure 7A]. Hence, the variations in *W*_{d} and *η *are less than 6.0% and 1.2%, respectively [Figure 7B]. The stable frequency-dependent energy storage properties are realized because the polar nanoregions can switch rapidly under the applied electric field^{[38]}. To evaluate the fatigue stability, the unipolar *P-E* loops under 15 MV m^{-1} are characterized for 10^{6} cycles [Figure 7C]. Fortunately, the *P-E* loops have no noticeable change and the variations in *W*_{d} and *η *are less than 0.6% and 0.7%, respectively [Figure 7D]. Figure 7E exhibits the unipolar *P-E* loops measured under 20 MV m^{-1} at various temperatures. It can be found that the *P*_{max} of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics is consistent with the trend of the *ε* and gradually decreases with increasing temperature. The reduction in *P*_{max} results in a decrease in *W*_{d}, while the *η *stays over 90% when the temperature is up to 120 °C. Figure 7F shows the energy storage properties (*W*_{d} and *η*) of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics with increasing temperature from 25 to 120 °C, revealing good temperature stability.

(A) Unipolar *P-E* loops of 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics measured under 19 MV m^{-1} at various frequencies, (C) under 15 MV m^{-1} at different cycles and (E) under 20 MV m^{-1} at various temperatures. Corresponding (B) frequency-dependent, (D) fatigue-dependent and (F) temperature-dependent energy storage properties.

In practical applications, dielectric capacitors charge and discharge at the microsecond or nanosecond timescale^{[1]}. The *W*_{d} and *η *calculated by the *P-E* loops cannot reflect the true energy storage properties^{[39]}, so a resistor-capacitance circuit is constructed to evaluate the discharge behavior of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics. Figure 8A displays the overdamped pulsed discharge electric current-time (*I-t*) curves at various *E* values. The corresponding *W*_{d} can be calculated using , where *R* and *V* are the load resistor (here *R* = 100 Ω) and the effective volume of the sample, respectively^{[40]}. The discharge rate is usually described by the discharge time corresponding to the 90% stored *W*_{d} value, which is abbreviated as *τ*_{0.9}. As the *E* increases, the current peak and *W*_{d} also increase. Finally, the *W*_{d} reaches 1.21 J cm^{-3} at 25 MV m^{-1 }[Figure 8B]. In general, the *W*_{d} calculated by the *I-t* curve is always lower than that calculated by the *P-E* loop because the characterization mechanisms with different measurement frequencies^{[1]} and dielectric material losses differ^{[41]}. The *τ*_{0.9} of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics is ~39 ns [Figure 8B]. The ultrafast discharge rate comes from the low hysteresis polarization response and the relaxor characteristic. This makes the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics more competitive in high-power applications^{[38,42]}. Moreover, the undamped pulsed discharge current curves at 25 °C under various *E* values are displayed in Figure 8C. From the current curves, we can calculate the current density (*C*_{D}) and power density (*P*_{D}) from *C*_{D} = *I*_{max}/*S* and *P*_{D} = *EI*_{max}/2*S*, where *I*_{max} and *S* represent the maximum value of the undamped pulsed discharge current curves and the electrode area, respectively^{[26]}. The *C*_{D} and *P*_{D} of the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics at 25 MV m^{-1} are 801 A cm^{-2} and 100 MW cm^{-3}, respectively [Figure 8D]. More importantly, from the undamped pulsed discharge current curves at 20 MV m^{-1} under various temperatures [Figure 8E], it can be found that the variations of *C*_{D} and *P*_{D} are ~15% from 25 to 140 °C [Figure 8F], which suggests that the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics have significant potential for pulsed power system applications.

## CONCLUSIONS

In summary, the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics with relaxor ferroelectric characteristics have an optimal *W*_{d} of 3.07 J cm^{-3}, a high *η *of 92.6%, a high *P*_{D} of 100 MW cm^{-3} and an ultrafast *τ*_{0.9} of 39 ns. Moreover, they exhibit stable energy storage properties in terms of frequency (0.1-100 Hz), fatigue (10^{6} cycles) and temperature (25-120 °C), as well as temperature-stable power density (25-140 °C). These ideal energy storage properties and pulsed discharge behavior make the 0.60BT-0.40NN ceramics more promising for high-stability energy storage MLCCs in pulsed power system applications.
