VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Direct high-resolution transmission electron microscopy observation of tetragonal nanotwins within the monoclinic M(C) phase of Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3))O(3)-0.35PbTiO(3) crystals
We report on the direct observation of tetragonal nanodomains within an average monoclinic M(C) phase of Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3))O(3)-0.35PbTiO(3) single crystals by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. These nanodomains are geometrically arranged in alternating layers of twins. The findings are consistent with the fundamental underlying assumptions of the ferroelectric adaptive phase theory.
