Antiferroelectric Bulk Ceramics
Abstract:The evolution of dynamic hysteresis of lead zirconate titanate stannate antiferroelectric bulk ceramics at various frequencies (f) and field amplitudes (E 0) has been investigated systematically. A series of asymmetrical minor loops were observed when the working fields were slightly lower than the forward switching field E AF. As E 0 increased above E AF, symmetrical double loops appeared and their energy densities w against f and E 0 were found to be fit the scaling behavior as w f −0.02(E 0 − E c)0.08, where E c representing the threshold field is designated as E AF. The study is helpful to application of antiferroelectrics as energy‐storage capacitors.
