The electrical response of Ba(Ti0.90Zr0.10)O3 (BZT) ceramics obtained by the mixed oxide method as a function of tungsten content was investigated. According to X-ray diffraction analysis the single phase BZT1W (1 wt.% W doped BZT) and BZT2W (2 wt.% W doped BZT) ceramics, crystallized in a perovskite structure, were obtained. It is also shown that tungsten substituted ceramics can be sintered at a reduced temperature when compared to the undoped BZT. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) analyses reveals that substitution of Ti4+ by W6+ causes distortion in the crystal structure changing lattice parameter. Substitution of W6+ on B-site of ABO3 perovskite BZT ceramics shifted the phase transition to lower temperatures up to a tungsten content of 2 wt.% leading to a relaxor-like behaviour.
