AbstractPZT is a ferroelectric ceramic material that has acquired immense importance in the field of electronics industry. The main focus of this report is to present the electrical conductivity response of manganese and cerium modified lead zirconatetitanate (PZT). The conductivity response has been investigated with respect to frequency of applied ac electric field and temperature. The samples have been prepared by mixing high purity chemicals, through high temperature solid state route. The frequency response of electrical conductivity has been analysed on the basis of Maxwell-Wagner and Koop’s model. The temperature response of electrical conductivity indicated that the compounds exhibit Arrhenius behaviour.
