Raman Imaging and Thermal Expansion of Highly Textured Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO3 Piezoelectric Ceramics

  • Philippe Colomban (a1) and Mai Pham-Thi (a2)

PMN(PZN)-PT single crystals exhibit unique electromechanical properties when oriented and poled along the <001> direction. While expensive crystal growth techniques are advancing slowly, it is of great practical importance to develop an alternative low-cost production method based on strongly oriented or textured ceramics. We present here the thermal expansion, dielectric properties and Raman spectroscopy study of Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO3 solid solution ((1-x)PMN-xPT, 0.2
