ABSTRACT
The microstructure of PbZr[sub 0.9]Ti[sub 0.1]O[sub 3] ceramics is studied by transmission electron microscopy. Two types of domain patterns are found, namely, the 109° domain with the F spots (1/2{hkl} superlattice reflections) observed in neighboring domains and the 71° domain with the F spots observed in one domain and having disappeared in the neighboring one. The computer simulation indicates that the F spots are forbidden at h=k positions so that they do not appear in the electron diffraction pattern if viewed along the [110] direction. Based on this result, the observed two types of domain patterns and their corresponding diffraction patterns can be explained. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    The microstructure in AO-excess SrTiO3 (A = Sr2+, Ca2+, Ba2+) ceramics is strongly affected by the formation of Ruddlesden-Popper fault-rich (RP fault) lamellae, which are coherently intergrown with the matrix of the perovskite grains. We studied the structure and chemistry of RP faults by...
