Abstract: Ba1-xDxTiO3, ceramic powders was synthesised using sol-gel-emulsion technique. Structure of the synthesised powders was analysed using X-ray diffractometer from which the lattice parameters were deduced. Effect of doping as a function of atomic radii and the concentration of dopant (D) was studied on these parameters. XRD analysis showed the synthesised material to possess pseudocubic symmetry. Crystallite size of these powders varied between 15.98-40.72 nm. Cell volume shrinkage observed on doping pure BaTiO3 was noted to be between 0.02-2.27%. Change in % tetragonality for the synthesised powders was 16.62-21.57. The experimental lattice parameter values matched more closely when calculated using the empirical formula devised by Jiang et al. than that using Rick Ubic. The |%error| assuming six-fold coordination for the doped BaTiO3 powders was between 0.0168% to 0.9314% using the empirical formula devised by Jiang et al. and 0.0296% to 1.0852% using the formula given by Rick Ubic.
