Abstract: This work investigates the evolution of the crystal structure of microwave-hydrothermal synthesized Ba(Y1/2Nb1/2)O3 powders as a function of firing temperature by Raman spectroscopy. The samples were produced at 200 °C and fired at temperatures ranging from 600 to 1600 °C. Raman spectra were obtained at room temperature for all samples and the results showed that materials fired at 1600 °C exhibited tetragonal (I4/m or C5 4h) structure, whereas those fired at lower temperatures exhibited the triclinic (P1 or C1 i ) structure. The results were compared with those observed for ceramics obtained by conventional solid-state methods. It is believed that the lowering of the symmetry verified in materials fired below 1600 °C is a consequence of the local disorder of Y+3 and Nb+5 ions in octahedral sites.
