Abstract

Crystal structures and piezoelectric properties of PbZrO3-PbTiO3-Pb(Ni1/3Nb2/3)O3 ceramics near the triple point composition, particularly characteristics of the pseudocubic phase, were investigated. The pseudocubic phase, which formed near the triple point composition, disappeared with increase in the PbZrO3 content. The pseudocubic phase had the Pm3m cubic structure. The tetragonal-pseudocubic morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) structure was developed during the tetragonal-to-cubic phase transformation. However, the rhombohedral phase directly transformed to the cubic phase because the structure of pseudocubic phase was similar to the rhombohedral structure. The specimens with pseudocubic phase and the specimens near pseudocubic phase exhibited nano-sized domains and small coercive electric fields, revealing their low domain wall energies. These specimens exhibited second-order ferroelectric-to-paraelectric phase transition and low Curie temperatures, confirming their low domain wall energies. The enhanced dielectric and piezoelectric properties of these specimens could be attributed to their low domain wall energies.
