Monte Carlo simulation study of diffuse scattering in PZT, Pb(Zr,Ti)O 3

Welberry, Thomas; Goossens, Darren; Withers, Raymond; Baba-Kishi, K. Z.


Transverse polarized diffuse streaks have been observed in diffraction patterns of Pb(Zr1-x Ti x)O3 (PZT) ceramics for compositions ranging from x = 0.3 (rhombohedral phase) to x = 0.7 (tetragonal phase) including the important morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) region (x = 0.48). The streaks correspond to diffuse planes of scattering in three dimensions, and these are oriented normal to the (cubic) $$ \langle 111\rangle-{c} $$ directions. A Monte Carlo (MC) model has been developed that...[Show more]
