Abstract: Barium Titanate doped with Cobalt is known for both its electric and magnetic properties. The synthesis and characterization of Cobalt doped barium titanate; BaTi1-xCoxO3(BTCO) x = 0.5was investigated with a view to understand its structural, magnetic and electrical properties. A finest possible sample of Co doped micro particles of BaTiO3 (BTO) with possible tetragonal structure via a solid-state route was prepared. Prepared samples of BaTi1-xCoxO3 (BTCO) were structural characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The dielectric constant measurements of the samples were carried out at 1Hz to 1 MHz Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) measurements revealed the magnetic nature of Cobalt doped BaTiO3. Ferroelectric hysteresis loop traced at the electric field in-between -15 to +15 (KV/cm). The relaxation phenomena that take place cane be attributable to the damping of dipole oscillator due to the application of external field. The impedance measurements were done up to 473 K in order to separate grain (bulk) and grain boundary contributions. The FESEM micrographs show proper grain growth and EDAX confirmed the presence of all the elements in samples. In the present study, various electrical properties of barium titanate based ceramics were explained and examples of the relevant applications were given. Copyright © 2017 VBRI Press.
