Thermal conductivities of BaTiO3, PbTiO3, KNbO3, KTaO3, NaNbO3, and Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3 (PMN) single crystals have been measured from 2 to 390 K. Pronounced jumps are found at structural transitions in BaTiO3 and KNbO3. A low-temperature anomaly from soft optical phonons is observed in KTaO3. For PMN and NaNbO3, glasslike behavior is observed in both the thermal conductivity and heat capacity measurements. We associate the glasslike behavior in NaNbO3 with the phase separation phenomena reported in recent studies.

    The isochoric thermal conductivity of solid nitrogen is investigated on four samples of different densities in the temperature interval from 20 K to the onset of melting. In α-N2 the isochoric thermal conductivity exhibits a dependence weaker than Λ∝1/T; in β-N2 it increases...

    First principles calculations were used to investigate the lattice dynamics, electronic property, and spontaneous polarization of Bi2ZnTiO6 10-atom supercell. We explore the ground structure from the highest P4/mmm phase by successively freezing in the unstable polar modes. We find that the...
