    A study is made of phase transitions in doped La[sub 0.9]Sr[sub 0.1]MnO[sub 3] compounds using combined x-ray, electrical, and magnetic measurements. Structural phase transitions are observed accompanied by a change in the cell volume at temperatures of 100-110 K and 300-340 K. These structural...

    The thermodynamic and crystallochemical conditions determining the types of the rotational phase transitions and their sequence in cubic perovskites are established. It is shown that a decrease in the tolerance factor and a change of the A-cation and its charge stimulates the softening of the...

    A structural model of the antiphase boundaries (APBs) induced by phase transition in perovskite and layered perovskite oxides is put forward. Besides the distortion of oxygen octahedra, the existence of two types of ion with different sizes on A sites in perovskite blocks and their ordering in...

    Chemical-alloying is demonstrated to stabilize the mixed-phase structure of highly strained epitaxial BiFeO3/LaAlO3 (001) heterostructures. Such mixed-phase structures are essential for the large electromechanical responses (4%-5% strains under applied electric field); however, films with...

    The electrothermal properties of the perovskite oxides barium titanate (BTO), lead titanate (PTO), and strontium titanate (STO) are computed near the temperatures of their ferroelectric and/or ferroelastic phase transitions. The computations are performed using a modified 2-4-6...
