Ceramic solid solutions (Bi1-yLay)4(V1-xZrx)2O11-z with x = 0-0.05, y = 0-0.16 have been prepared by the solid state reaction method. The samples were studied by differential thermal analysis, diffraction, dielectric spectroscopy, and impedance methods. The concentration and temperature stabilization regions of the polymorphous α-, β-, γ'-, γ-modifications have been determined. The effects observed in dielectric properties, conductivity, and impedance data confirmed the influence both of intrinsic oxygen vacancies and those "pinned" at ferroelectric domain boundaries on the temperature hysteresis of α-β phase transition and their contribution to mechanism of oxygen ion transport.
