Paper Title:
Ferroelectric Distortion in Bi4Ti3O12 Studied by Neutron Powder Diffraction
  Abstract

Crystal structures of Bi4Ti3O12 ferroelectrics have been investigated by high-temperature neutron powder diffraction study. The ferroelectricity in Bi4Ti3O12 is shown to originate from the in-plane displacement of TiO6 octahedra with respect to heavy Bi ions, and that the off-center Ti displacement in the octahedra plays a minor role. Bond valence analysis shows that the underbonding of Bi with the adjacent oxide ions at the perovskite A site in high-temperature paraelectric state plays an essential role in the ferroelectric phase transition in the Bi4Ti3O12 system.
