Paper Title:
Ferroelectric Domain Structures and Piezoelectric Properties of Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 Ceramics
  Abstract

We investigated domain structures in Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 (PZT) ceramics whose composition lies on the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and evaluated the piezoelectric properties of PZT. We found that monoclinic nanosized domains (nanodomains), which form in tetragonal domains, strongly correlated with the piezoelectric properties of PZT. The degree of formation of nanodomains depends on the grain composition. Thus, controlling the homogeneity of grain composition in the ceramics is crucial for optimizing the piezoelectric properties of PZT.
