Abstract: Ferroelectric Pb0.7 (1-y) Ca0.7y Nd0.2 TiO3 (PCNT- y) compositions with y ranging from 0 to 0.60, were synthesized via a mechanical activation route. The tetragonality (c/a) of PCNT- y at room temperature decreases from 1.0125 to 1.0000 upon substitution of Pb2+ with smaller sized Ca2+. The composition with Ca-doping y=0.60 demonstrates a unit-cell volume shrinkage of 4.063% as compared to that of Pb0.7 Nd0.2 TiO3, while the Raman spectra are of the characteristic features of PbTiO3. As the Ca content (y) increases from 0 to 0.60, there is a crossover from a displacive phase transition (y=0 and 0.10) to a diffusive one (0.20y0.40), accompanied by a decrease in transition temperature (TC or Tmax) at a linear rate of ∼8.2 K/at. %. The compositions with y
