We describe the development of an atom-based Monte Carlo simulation model which gives rise to a nanoscale polar domain structure as envisaged to occur in Pb (Zn1 3 Nb2 3) O3 (PZN) and similar relaxor ferroelectric materials. Individual domains are essentially thin platelike domains normal to each of the six 110 directions. Calculated diffuse scattering patterns have been obtained from the simulations, and these are in good agreement with observed neutron scattering data. Nanoscale domain...[Show more]
