Electric energy storage properties of BiFeO3-based thin films
In the quest for alternative technologies to store and convert energy, ferroelectrics have drawn considerable interest as these are characterised by high power density and fast charge/discharge time. Ferroelectrics are currently widely used to provide a cost effective, temperature and vibration stable solutions for general electronic applications.
We report investigations carried out in a new composition 0.4BiFeO3-0.6SrTiO3, where a high energy density 18.6 J/cm3 at 972 kV/cm was measured at room temperature and an impressive thermal stability (temperature coefficient of capacitance below 11%) of the dielectric response at least up to 200 ºC was observed.
