Ferroelectric phase inducing threshold electric field Eth and its temperature dependence were determined in relaxor ferroelectric 0.87Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.13PbTiO3 (PMN–13PT) ceramics by measuring dielectric response on a dc field pulse. Evolution of the induced ferroelectricity was observed by means of polarization measurements. An inducing threshold field was found to have a minimum of Eth,min=1.55 kV/cm at T=-5 °C. In contrast to pure PMN, which shows a minimum threshold field near the depolarization temperature, the temperature of the minimum threshold field differs by an amount of ΔT=23 °C from the depolarization temperature Tdp=18 °C in PMN-13PT.
