Abstract: Samples of ceramics based on barium titanate and calcium titanate were obtained and studied. We have analyzed the elemental composition of the obtained composite. It is shown that calcium-barium titanate Ba1-xCaxTiO3 solid solution contains calcium with x < 0,3. In ceramic samples with x ≥ 0,3, an excess of CaTiO3 was recrystallized in individual grains. An increase in the concentration of calcium leads to both a decrease in the size of the samples and a decrease in its density. An increase in the grain size (by several times) of the BaTiO3 ceramics in comparison with the CaTiO3 ceramics leads to a corresponding increase in the microhardness of the samples.

Keywords: barium titanate piezoelectric ceramics, lead-free materials, grain structure
