Electric-field-induced, antiferroelectric-ferroelectric (AFE-FE) phase transitions are common for AFE materials. To date, the strain and preferred orientation evolution as well as the role of the intermediate FE state during the successive AFE-FE-AFE phase transitions has not been clear. To this end, we have herein studied a typical AFE Pb0.97La0.02(Zr0.56Sn0.33Ti0.11)O3 (PLZST) material using in-situ neutron diffraction. It is striking that the AFE-FE phase transition is not fully reversible:...[Show more]
