Abstract: Lead-free (1-x)Bi0.5(Na0.80K0.20)0.5TiO3-xBaTiO3 or (1-x)BNKT-xBT (x = 0–0.15 mol fraction) piezoelectric ceramics have been investigated. The optimum density was found for the ceramic sintered at 1125°C, corresponding 98–99% of their theoretical values. All ceramics had a single perovskite structure. The coexisting mixed tetragonal-rhombohedral phases all over the entire compositional range with tetragonal phase becoming superior at higher BT. The diffuse phase transition was promoted by the addition of BT. With increasing BT content, the Tm and Td values were found to decrease. Phase transition from ferroelectric (FE) phase to ergodic relaxor (ER) phase was also induced by the changes in BT content. These changes significantly suspended long-range ferroelectric order, then correspondingly reducing the Pr and Ec, resulting in an improvement of electrostrictive and electric field-induced strain responses. A significant increasing of electric field-induced strain response (Smax  = 0.37% and d*33  = 630 pm/V) is noted for the x = 0.05 ceramic. Furthermore, high electrostrictive coefficient (Q33) of 0.0421 m4/C2 is observed for this composition, which was more than ~ 2 times (~108%) as compared to the pure BNKT ceramic. The studied results indicated these ceramics can be considered promising candidates for actuator applications.
