Abstract:Lanthanum substituted lead zirconate-titanate (PLZT) ceramics of composition 11.1/55/45 have been studied by measuring high electric field properties. Dc bias, dielectric and P-E hysteresis loop measurements have been employed to construct an E (electric field) versus T (temperature) phase diagram. At lower temperatures and small electric fields an antiferroelectric phase with tetragonal symmetry has been found. Applying high electric fields gives rise to a field-induced phase transition from the antiferroelectric to the ferroelectric state, however, without X-ray detectable change in crystal symmetry.
