Two materials were prepared with composition PbMg0.3-Nb0.6Zr0.1O3 (PMNZ/10) and PbMg0.32Nb0.65Zr0.03O3 (PMNZ/3). Slight modifications in lead oxide content of these materials were made to study its influence on the sintering properties. The stoichiometric PMNZ/3 gave the best results. It has a sintering temperature as low as 900°C and a relative dielectric constant of 10 000 at room temperature.
