Structural phase transitions in the ABO3-type lead-free eco-friendly piezoelectric (05NBT) have been studied as a function of temperature using dielectric and X-ray diffraction techniques. Below 300 K, we observed dispersion in dielectric permittivity with the frequency, which confirmed relaxor behaviour in 05NBT. Using detailed analysis of temperature-dependent powder X-ray diffraction data of 05NBT, four phase transitions were identified across 600 K, 773 K, 823 K and 923 K. We found that on doping 5% NBT in pure sodium niobate, the low-temperature rhombohedral ferroelectric (N) phase and the high-temperature (S) phase of the sodium niobate get suppressed. To get a better insight about the temperature-driven structural phase transitions, various antiferrodistortive and additional distortive mode as well as the mode amplitude relative to high-symmetry cubic phase were computed and results are discussed.
