We have fabricated environmental friendly lead-free Bi0.5(Na0.82K0.18)0.5TiO3 (BNKT) and Bi0.5(Na(0.82−x)Li x K0.18)0.5(Ti0.95Sn0.05)O3 piezoelectric ceramics (BNKTS-xLi) with x ranging from 0 to 0.05 by the conventional solid state reaction method. The effects of Li substitution were studied through the crystal structures and the piezoelectric properties. The X-ray diffraction data showed that BNKTS-xLi ceramics experienced a phase transition from the pseudocubic phase to the rhombohedral and tetragonal symmetry when the Li doping content increased. The typical butterfly-shaped bipolar S-E loops of piezoelectric materials were observed in all compositions. The small amount of Li substitution for BNKTS-xLi ceramics led to a marked enhancement in piezoelectric properties, with the electric field-induced strain (S max/E max) reaching the highest value of 590 pm/V at x = 0.04. The BNKTS-xLi ceramics will be excellent candidates for applications in lead-free ferroelectric and piezoelectric devices.
