Barium-cobalt-bismuth-niobate, Ba0.5Co0.5Bi2Nb2O9 (BCoBN) nanocrystalline ferroelectric ceramic was prepared through chemical route. XRD analysis showed single phase layered perovskite structure of BCoBN when calcined at 650 A degrees C, 2 h. The average crystallite size was found to be 18 nm. The microstructure was studied through scanning electron microscopy. The dielectric and ferroelectric properties were investigated in the temperature range 50-500 A degrees C. The dielectric constant and dielectric loss plot with respect to temperature both indicated strong relaxor behavior. Frequency versus complex impedance plot also supported the relaxor properties of the material. The impedance spectroscopy study showed only grain conductivity. Variation of ac conductivity study exhibited Arrhenius type of electrical conductivity where the hopping frequency shifted towards higher frequency region with increasing temperature. The ac conductivity values were used to evaluate the density of state at the Fermi level. The minimum hopping distance was found to be decreased with increasing temperature.
