Abstract

Comparative studies of the structure and property of a ferroelectric Pb0.99Nb0.02[(Zr0.57Sn0.43)0.88Ti0.12]0.98O3 and an antiferroelectric Pb0.99Nb0.02[(Zr0.57Sn0.43)0.94Ti0.06]0.98O3 ceramic were conducted. In addition to their different crystal structures, domain morphologies, Raman modes, and dielectric/ferroelectric properties, distinct fracture behaviors under Vickers indentation are also clearly seen. We propose that the antiferroelectric-to-ferroelectric phase transformation may have been triggered during the fracture process. Supporting evidence for localized phase transformation was provided by an in situ Raman spectroscopic experiment.
