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 ...
Damped soft phonons and diffuse scattering in 40%Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3-60%PbTiO3
(American Physical Society, 2006-02-13)
Using neutron elastic and inelastic scattering and high-energy x-ray diffraction, we present a comparison of 40% Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3-60% PbTiO3 (PMN-60PT) with pure Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 (PMN) and PbTiO3 (PT). We measure the ...
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 ...
Direct observation of the near-surface layer in Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 using neutron diffraction
(American Physical Society, 2004-11-19)
Spatially resolved neutron diffraction as a function of crystal depth in Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3 reveals the presence of a distinct near-surface region where a strong distortion in the lattice exists. A dramatic change in both ...
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 ...
Dynamic origin of the morphotropic phase boundary: Soft modes and phase instability in 0.68Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3)O(3))-0.32PbTiO(3)
(American Physical Society, 2008-09-04)
We report neutron inelastic scattering and high-resolution x-ray diffraction measurements on single crystal 0.68Pb(Mg(1/3)Nb(2/3)O(3))-0.32PbTiO(3)) (PMN-0.32PT), a relaxor ferroelectric material that lies within the ...
