ABSTRACT
The electrocaloric (EC) effect of BaTiO3 multilayer thick film structure was investigated by direct measurement and theoretical calculation. The samples were prepared by the tape-casting method, which had 180 dielectric layers with an average thickness of 1.4 μm. The thermodynamic calculation based on the polarization-temperature curves predicted a peak heat adsorption of 0.32 J/g at 80 °C under 176 kV/cm electric field. The direct measurement via differential scanning calorimeter showed a much higher EC effect of 0.91 J/g at 80 °C under same electric field. The difference could result from the different trends of changes of electric polarization and lattice elastic energy under ultrahigh electric field.
