Neutron scattering and piezoresponse force microscopy studies of several relaxor ferroelectric materials
Relaxor ferroelectrics are an extremely important class of functional
electroceramic materials which shows giant dielectric permittivities and strong
piezoelectric properties. Their structures invariably exhibit a complex hierarchy of
scales, from the very local to the nanoscale to the long range. It is this complexity from
which their functional behavior derives. The current knowledge of the structure-function
relationship of relaxor ferroelectric materials still remains at an...[Show more]
