Evidence for anisotropic polar nanoregions in relaxor Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3: A neutron study of the elastic constants and anomalous TA phonon damping in PMN
(American Physical Society, 2012-09-18)
We use neutron inelastic scattering to characterize the acoustic phonons in the relaxor Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 (PMN) and demonstrate the presence of a highly anisotropic damping mechanism that is directly related to short-range ...
Role of coexisting tetragonal regions in the rhombohedral phase of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 crystals on enhanced piezoelectric properties on approaching the morphotropic phase boundary
(AIP Publishing, 2012-01-01)
The ferroelectric domain and local structures of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 (NBT-x%BT) crystals for x = 0, 4.5, and 5.5 have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy. The results show that the size of polar ...
A monoclinic-tetragonal ferroelectric phase transition in lead-free (K0.5Na0.5)NbO3-xLiNbO3 solid solution
(American Institute of Physics, 2012-05-15)
A monoclinic ferroelectric phase with space group Pm has been discovered in lead-free (K0.5Na0.5)NbO3-5%LiNbO3 solid solution ceramics by high energy synchrotron x-ray powder diffraction measurements. At ambient temperature, ...
