Keizer, K. and Lansink, G.J. and Burggraaf, A.J. (1978) Anomalous dielectric behaviour of La(III) substituted lead titanate ceramics. Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids, 39 (1). pp. 59-63. ISSN 0022-3697
|Abstract:||In La(III) substituted PbTiO3 ceramics the behaviour of the reciprocal dielectric constant in the paraelectric phase can be described by the relation [...] with the exponent 1 γ<2 depending on the composition. This γ-value is an intermediate of values for Curie-Weiss behaviour (γ = 1) and of values connected with diffuse phase transitions (γ = 2) and increases with increasing La(III) concentration.
An excellent agreement between experimental and calculated permittivity curves in the paraelectric phase can be achieved using an alternative equation consisting of a linear and a quadratic term with coefficients varying systematically with the composition. The last equation can be derived and interpreted by means of a physical model assuming the existence of heterophase fluctuations.
