Abstract:

The fatigue behavior of lead zirconate stannate titanate (PZST) ceramics prepared by spark plasma sintering (SPS) was investigated. Polarization and strain hysteresis loops were monitored. The material shows a high resistance to fatigue because of bipolar electric cycling. Both maximum strain and switchable polarization first show a fatigue stage 0 to 105 cycles and then a fatigue-free period up to 108 cycles. The maximum losses of maximum strain and switchable polarization are 18% and 10% of their initial values, respectively. The dominant fatigue mechanism is assigned to the pinning of domain walls by charged defects.
