Investigation of Temperature and Composition Dependence of Relaxor Ferroelectric (1-x)PZN :xPT Using Micro-Raman Spectroscopy

  • S. Gupta (a1), R.S. Katiyar (a1) and A. S. Bhalla (a2)


Micro-Raman spectra of relaxor ferroelectric (RFE) in the (1-x)Pb(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3 :xTiO3 solid solution series have been measured as a function of temperature (70-580K) and composition (x = 0.02, 0.085, and 0.11). Micro-Raman spectra have been recorded in frequency range of 30-1000cm-1 and have been analyzed for all the Raman modes observed in terms of integrated intensity, phonon width and phonon frequency position. No soft mode like behavior is observed in the measured frequency range. We do observe two multiple phase transitions at 67°C (340K) and 147°C (420K) for the composition ≤ 0.91PZN:09PT, but both the transitions are slightly diffused in nature.
