Abstract: The microwave dielectric and magnetic properties of Pb(Fe2/3W1/3)O-3 multiferroic ceramics were investigated. A dielectric dispersion occurring in the frequency range 100 MHz-3 GHz and in a broad temperature range showed itself to be a powerful tool to detect magnetostrictive effects. The experimental results revealed the following remarkable features: the temperature dependence of f(R) (characteristic frequency) and the dielectric strength Delta epsilon (characteristic of the dispersion) enabled us to identify not only the para-ferroelectric (T-C approximate to 180 K) but also the para-antiferromagnetic (T-N approximate to 340 K) phase transitions, while magnetic measurements revealed the para-antiferromagnetic ordering and a weak superexchange interaction (T-N2 similar to 15 K). Additionally, both characterizations confirmed the existence of structural or magnetic instabilities around 250 K. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
