Abstract: Barium titanate-based ceramics are most commonly found in electronics as dielectric layers in multilayer ceramic capacitors. Two different forms of Barium titanate-based ceramics were analyzed in this article to determine heat capacities as a function of temperature. The thermal conductivities and thermal diffusivities of these two forms were also determined using the Hot Disk Transient Plane Source method. Inferences towards the performance and reliability of barium titanate-based ceramics under various stressful conditions, were then made with the resulting data.
