The research is aimed at creating a target from Sn doped barium-titanate ceramics. A technological regulation for the preparation of test bodies from a material synthesized by a low-temperature sol-gel method has been developed. The physicochemical parameters of the samples were determined and the temperature dependence of the dielectric permittivity was monitored. Physicochemical characterization of the samples was performed by X-Ray diffraction (XRD). and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The preparation of pure BaTiO3 cubic phase was established. The dielectric permittivity of Sn doped barium-titanate possesses a maximum value of 45000 at a Curie temperature- Tc 40oC.
