A series of BaTiO3 (BT)-based ferroelectric glass–ceramics have been prepared via controlled crystallization by varying the Ba/Ti ratio in an aluminum silicate glass composition, and the subsequent microstructure, phase evolution, and dielectric properties have been investigated. X-ray diffraction indicated that an increasing Ba/Ti ratio promoted the crystallization of BaTiO3 and BaAl2Si2O8 from the glass matrix, and the cracking of glass–ceramics appears to be correlated to mismatch in the thermal expansion coefficient among BaTiO3, BaAl2Si2O8, and the glass matrix. In addition, it was found that increasing the Ba/Ti ratio facilitated the formation of a dendrite structure with obvious porosity. The change in the Ba/Ti ratio in the glass notably modified the dielectric properties: a high Ba/Ti ratio in the glass resulted in an increased dielectric constant and decreased breakdown strength.
