Interplay between static and dynamic polar correlations in relaxor Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3
(American Physical Society, 2010-04-01)
We have characterized the dynamics of the polar nanoregions in Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 through high-resolution neutron-backscattering and spin-echo measurements of the diffuse-scattering cross section. We find that the ...
Evidence of decoupled lattice distortion and ferroelectric polarization in the relaxor system PMN-xPT
(American Physical Society, 2003-12-30)
We report high q-resolution neutron scattering data on PMN-xPT single crystals with x=20% and 27%. No rhombohedral distortion occurs in the 20PT sample for temperatures as low as 50 K. On the other hand, the 27PT sample ...
Soft phonon columns on the edge of the Brillouin zone in the relaxor PbMg1/3Nb2/3O3
(American Physical Society, 2009-06-10)
We report lattice-dynamical measurements, made using neutron inelastic-scattering methods, of the relaxor perovskite PbMg1/3Nb2/3O3 (PMN) at momentum transfers near the edge of the Brillouin zone. Unusual "columns" of ...
Neutron and x-ray diffraction study of cubic  field-cooled Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3
(American Physical Society, 2007-08-01)
Neutron and x-ray diffraction techniques have been used to study the competing long- and short-range polar order in the relaxor ferroelectric Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 (PMN) under a  applied electric field. Despite reports ...
