Nb doped barium titanate (BT) experiences unique phenomena over a range of dopant concentrations. One important phenomenon is the resistivity behavior as a function of donor concentration. The role of the grains and the grain boundaries in this system is not fully established yet. There are diverse opinions on this subject, since this system is usually only in partial equilibrium and hence very complex. We examine the system using Impedance Spectroscopy (IS). Two new analysis methods for IS based on evolutionary programming techniques, which are inspired by biological evolution, have been developed in our lab. Those evolutionary programming techniques are called Genetic Programming (GP) and Genetic Algorithm (GA). This is an approach to solve (or in the case of GA suggest solution for) such ill-posed inverse problems. By implementation and improvement of the use of those techniques for analyzing IS results, we believe that the role of the grains and the grain boundaries can be separated and the physical processes occur can be analyzed.
