Abstract: Perovskite types Ba1xBi2x/3Ti0.75Zr0.25O3 (with x = 0.0, 0.025, 0.05) ceramics have been prepared through solid state reaction route. The room temperature XRD study suggests that all the compositions have single phase cubic symmetry with space group Pm-3m. Temperature dependent dielectric studies of the ceramics have been investigated in the frequency range of 50 Hz–1 MHz. The densities of the samples are determined using Archimedes’ principle and found to be 98% of X-ray density. The dielectric study revealed diffuse phase transition of second order. A broad dielectric anomaly coupled with the shift of dielectric maxima toward a higher temperature with increasing frequency indicates the relaxor-type behavior in the ceramics. The diffusivity increases with increase in Bi contents in the studied composition range. The transition temperature decreases with increase in Bi contents due to the decrease in grain size.
