Lead-free piezoelectric 0.75(Bi 1/2 Na 1/2 )TiO 3 -0.20(Bi 1/2 K 1/2 )TiO 3 -0.05BaTiO 3 ceramics(abbreviated as BNKBT-20) with addition of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 wt% of CeO 2 , respectively, were prepared by a conventional mixed oxide method. The addition of CeO 2 can reduce the dissipation factor and enhance the mechanical quality factor significantly. The composition with 0.4 wt% CeO 2 has a piezoelectric d 33 constant of 129 × 10 - 12 C/N and a relatively low dissipation factor (tan δ = 1.8%) at 1 kHz which shows a 50% reduction in the dissipation factor when compared with BNKBT-20 before doping (tan δ = 3.74%).
