PHASE TRANSITIONS IN THE PLZT x/85/15 SOLID SOLUTIONS
Abstract:Role of a La on the nature of phase transition in the PLZT x/85/15 is compared with the PLZT compositions of lower Zr/Ti ratio. Thermal dependence of the dielectric permittivity, thermal expansion and elastic modulus reveal sequential transfer from macroscopic ferroelectric to antiferroelectric and nonpolar state, if La concentration is increased. Diffused, from frequency independent thermal dependence of dielectric permittivity for compositions in certain La concentration range above 4 at% coexist with the well expressed phase transition between paraelectric and antiferroelectric phases.
