In the present study, Zn-doped CaTiO3 nanocrystalline was synthesized to study the thermistor behavior with temperature. The X-ray powder diffraction analysis showed the formation of a single-phase orthorhombic structure at room temperature. The electrical resistance of the Zn-doped CaTiO3 increased with increasing doping concentration and decreased at higher measuring temperature, showing a negative temperature coefficient of resistance (NTCR) behavior. Different thermistor parameters were calculated using Steinhart–Hart equations, whilst time domain analysis confirmed faster response towards applied voltage.

Abstract

In the present study, Zn-doped CaTiO3 nanocrystalline was synthesized to study the thermistor behavior with temperature. The X-ray powder diffraction analysis showed the formation of a single-phase orthorhombic structure at room temperature. The electrical resistance of the Zn-doped CaTiO3 increased with increasing doping concentration and decreased at higher measuring temperature, showing a negative temperature coefficient of resistance (NTCR) behavior. Different thermistor parameters were calculated using Steinhart–Hart equations, whilst time domain analysis confirmed faster response towards applied voltage.
