|Title:||Phase Transitions And Magnetoelectroelastic Instabilities In Pb(fe 1/2nb1/2)o3 Multiferroic Ceramics|
|Abstract:||Magnetoelectric coupling can be observed in multiferroic materials in the regions where magnetic and ferroelectric ordering coexist and in many cases is mediated via lattice strain. Pb(Fe1/2Nb1/2)O3 (PFN) is a well-known multiferroic, presenting ferroelectric ordering (below TC = 380 K) and a Néel temperature (antiferromagnetic ordering) TN = 143 K. However, recent experimental results suggest that PFN can display ferromagnetic ordering at higher temperatures and a still unclear sequence of phase transitions. In this work, high-density PFN ceramics were prepared by a conventional ceramic method. Dielectric, magnetic and anelastic responses were measured as a function of temperature. The experimental results present complementary evidence of anomalies (additional to those which can be directly associated with the reported transitions at TC and TN) which cold be associated with a structural phase transition (T ∼ 315 K), an antiferromagnetic-ferromagnetic phase transition (110 K) and magnetoelectroelastic instabilities around 250 K. © 2012 Acta Materialia Inc.
