Abstract [en]

A single-phase Bi0.91La0.05Tb0.04FeO3 polycrystalline ceramic was fabricated by spark-plasma-sintering the precursor powder prepared by a sol-gel method. Temperature-dependent properties of polycrystalline Bi0.91La0.05Tb0.04FeO3 were characterized by x-ray diffraction, dielectric, and piezoelectric measurement. The x-ray diffraction results revealed a phase transition near 700 degrees C. Especially, temperature-dependent dielectric behavior demonstrated that there was a dielectric abnormal peak at about 697 degrees C, in addition to those two well-known dielectric abnormal peaks at 337 degrees C (Neel temperature) and 831 degrees C (Curie temperature). The observations, together with thermal depoled behavior, suggest a ferroelectric-ferroelectric phase transition from R(3)c to Pbnm at around 700 degrees C.
