Certain longitudinal acoustic waves are found to exhibit anomalous propagation in the vicinity of Tc. The relaxation times, τ0, for a noninteracting dipole are evaluated from the Brillouin shifts, based on a phenomenological approach. The τ0 values are the same in both PbHPO4 and PbDPO4, indicating that the ferroelectric transition is driven by an order-disorder relaxation mode. This study also reveals that the paraelectric phase symmetry is, on a macroscopic scale, centrosymmetric. © 1995 The American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review B||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/95899||ISSN:||01631829||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevB.51.8005|
