In this contribution, (0.80-x)Pb(Cr1/5,Ni1/5,Sb3/5)O3-xPbTiO3-0.20PbZrO3 perovskiteceramics namely PZT-CNSwere prepared by solid state reaction method. The obtained samples have been characterized by different techniques including XRD, density test, SEM analysis, and Dielectric measurements in order to investigate the effects of sintering temperature and titanium content on microstructure and dielectric properties. The obtained experimental results have been reported and well discussed.
