Pb(Yb1/2Nb1/2)-PbTiO3 (PYbN-PT) ceramics at the MPB composition (50:50) with a relative density ≥ 98% were reactively sintered. The ceramic had a remanent polarization of 40 μC/cm2, a maximum dielectric constant of 23,000 at Tc = 363°C, and a piezoelectric charge coefficient, d33, of 472 pC/N. These values are higher than the conventionally sintered samples reported in the literature, which makes reactive sintering an attractive process for fabricating PYbN-PT.
