Quantifying Domain Textures in Lead Zirconate Titanate Using 022:202 and 220 Diffraction Peaks
Determination of the domain textures in many lead zirconate titanate (PZT) piezoelectrics can be complicated by the presence of second phases, internal strains and small differences in lattice parameters for the commonly used 002 and 200:020 peaks. The domain texture is influenced by the applied polarization necessary for these materials to demonstrate piezoelectricity. In this paper we explore the use of 022:202 and 220 peaks for evaluating the domain textures and helping resolve the complexities of texture analysis in the presence of multiple phases. The two materials explored in this paper include a nominally single phase tetragonal PZT material and a mixed phase tetragonal-monoclinic lead magnesium niobate (PMN)-PZT alloy.
