Methods to improve dielectric and piezoelectric properties of ferroelectric ceramics with high Curie temperatures (TC > 700 K) are discussed. In the first method improving the electrophysical properties is achieved due to a change in technology of the synthesis of powders of ferroelectric phases, and a proposed technological mode enables one to keep a composition of these powders due to a decrease of temperature of the synthesis of the chemically active powders and to a decrease of temperature of sintering. In this method high-temperature ferroelectric ceramics based on the Aurivillius phases are characterised by the piezoelectric coefficient d33 ≤ 40 pС / N and dielectric permittivity ϵT33/ϵ0≤ 230. The second method is concerned with ferroelectric phases of PbTiO3 – PbZrO3 – Bi4Ti3О12 – МеТiO3 (Ме = Са, Sr, Ва), and on this basis ceramics are formed with larger piezoelectric parameters and TC > 700 K. Temperature of the synthesis of powders based on ferroelectric phases, obtained using the low-temperature method, is lower by 430 K on the average, at reducing the process time range by more than 3 times.
