Abstract: The phase transformation of annealed and poled 0.955Pb (Zn 1/3Nb2/3)O3 -0.045 PbTiO3 (PZN-4.5%PT) single crystals has been studied by means of combined bulk property measurements (dielectric permittivity and thermal current density measurements) and microstructural characterization (polarized light microscope and high-resolution x-ray diffraction). Our results showed that upon heating under zero-field condition, poled PZN-4.5%PT undergoes a R-(R+ RNT +T+TNT) - (T+TNT) -C transformation sequence, where (R+RNT) and (T+TNT) denote that the rhombohedral and tetragonal phases present consist of a mixture of microscopic (R,T) and nanotwin (RNT, TNT) domains and C denotes the cubic phase. The RNT and T NT nanotwin domains were detected only in the temperature vicinity of the R-T transformation, possibly as a means to alleviate the transformation stress in the material. These nanotwin diffractions can be easily mistaken as monoclinic diffractions. © 2008 American Institute of Physics.
