We present here results of a powder x-ray diffraction study on the multiferroic 0.8BiFeO3–0.2BaTiO3 in the temperature range of 300–925 K. Our results provide unambiguous evidence for paraelectric cubic phase. We do not find any evidence for intermediate β-phase in our studies. The rhombohedral to cubic phase transition is shown to be of first order as revealed by the coexistence of cubic and rhombohedral phases over 100 K range and a discontinuous change in the unit cell volume. An anomaly in the unit cell volume at the magnetic transition temperature indicative of the magnetoelastic coupling is also reported.
