X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy study on A-site ordering of lanthanum-modified lead zirconate titanate relaxor

  • Fei Fang (a1) and Xiaowen Zhang (a1)

Abstract

The ordering behavior of La-modified lead zirconate titanate relaxor (PLZT 9/65/35) was investigated by use of an x-ray diffractometer (XRD) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). It was shown that a {h + 1/2, k + 1/2, 0}-type superlattice exists both in the x-ray diffraction pattern and selected area electron diffraction (SAED) image. High-resolution electron micrographs further demonstrated the existence of the superlattice and exposed the ordered and disordered regions in the lattice level. A model referring to an A-site body-centered pseudo-cubic superstructure was proposed.
