Abstract: A 2D Monte Carlo simulation was done as an approach to get further insight of acceptor-doped ferroelectric material. By utilizing vector model allowing 14 directions of orientation for ferroelectric systems, Metropolis algorithm was applied on DIFFOUR Hamiltonian to obtain hysteresis profiles. Subjected to different concentration of acceptor dopants, power law scaling of hysteresis properties were obtained as functions of external parameters such as temperature, external field amplitude and frequency. The hysteresis loop shape and properties agreed well with those obtained experimentally.

Abstract: In this work, the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) was used to model ferroelectric hysteresis using data measured from soft lead zirconate titanate [Pb (Zr1−xTix)O3 or PZT] ceramics as an application. Data from experiments were split into training, testing and validation dataset. Four ANN models were developed separately to predict output of the hysteresis area, remnant, coercivity and squareness. Each model has two neurons in the input layer, which represent field amplitude and field frequency. The ANNs were trained with varying number of hidden layer and number of neurons in each layer to find the best network architecture with highest accuracy. After the networks have been trained, they were used to predict hysteresis properties of the unseen testing patterns of input. The predicted and the testing data were found to match very well which suggests the ANN success in modeling ferroelectric hysteresis properties obtained from experiments.

Abstract: In this work, effects of compressive stress on the ferroelectric properties of 0.7PMN–0.3PT ceramics were investigated. The ceramics with the formula (0.7)Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-(0.3)PbTiO were prepared by a conventional mixed-oxide method. The ferroelectric properties under compressive stress were observed at stress up to 80 MPa using a compressometer in conjunction with a modified Sawyer-Tower circuit. The results showed that applied stress had a significant influence on the ferroelectric properties of 0.7PMN–0.3PT ceramics. Ferroelectric characteristics, i.e. the area of the ferroelectric hysteresis (P-E) loop, the saturation polarization (Psat), the remanent polarization (Pr) and loop squareness (Rsq), decreased with increasing compressive stress, while the coercive field (Ec) remained relatively constant. Stress-induced domain wall motion suppression and non-180oC ferroelectric domain switching processes are responsible for the changes observed.

Abstract: The compositions of Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3 doped with 1-6 mole% Nb content were prepared by a conventional mixed oxide technique. It was found that the phase formed depended on the dopant concentration. At lower concentration, the dominate phase was the tetragonal. With increasing Nb content the rhombohedral phase tended to increase. Furthermore, the Curie temperature (Tc) and dielectric constant decreased with increasing Nb concentration and the dielectric maximum peaks were broadened with more rhombohedral phase presence, causing the diffused ferroelectric-paraelectric phase transition. The impedance of the samples decreased with increasing temperature and it was also observed that the impedance increased with increasing Nb concentration.

Abstract: This work studies the temperature-driven ferroelectric phase transition of ferroelectric polarization under the absence of electric field. The modified Heisenberg model in three dimensions was considered and simulated via Monte Carlo simulation. The Metropolis algorithm and the periodic boundary condition were employed. The dependence of electric polarization on temperature was investigated to define the ferroelectric phases and their structural phase transitions. From the results, with well-defined set of relevant temperature parameters, the phase dependent polarization-behavior was found with a sudden change in its behaviors at the transition points. The structure factors were also considered and supported these phase changes. This conclusively pinpointed the important of temperature-dependent parameters in modeling ferroelectric materials.

Abstract: Monte Carlo simulation was used to observe the dynamic magnetic behavior of dilute Ising ultra-thin-film. The hysteresis properties were investigated as varying the non-magnetic concentration, field frequency and field amplitude where the Metropolis algorithm was used. From the results, at fixed temperature and field amplitude, the hysteresis loop increases in size with increasing frequency at low frequency region but reduces at high frequency region due to the increase of the phase-lag between magnetization and external field signals. With the inclusion of non-magnetic sites, the phase-lag shifts to higher frequency as a result of weaker magnetic interaction. In addition, the scaling relation among the hysteresis area, the field parameters and non-magnetic concentration was proposed to provide general information of how the dilution affects hysteresis properties of dilute magnetic in ultra-thin-film structure.

Abstract: In this work, the ferroelectric hysteresis in thin films was investigated with Monte Carlo simulation using the DIFFOUR Hamiltonian and the Metropolis algorithm. The field frequency, the filed amplitude and the thickness dependence of hysteresis properties were found. For instance, at high enough field, the area increases, maintains and reduces with increasing frequency. However, with increasing the film’s thickness, the area increases over the whole considered frequencies, and the frequency at maximum area shifts to a lower frequency due to the stronger ferroelectric coupling in thicker films. This strongly indicates the thickness dependence of the ferroelectric hysteresis. In addition, the power law scaling relation between the hysteresis properties and input parameters, which are the film’s thickness and the field parameters, were proposed. The scaling exponents were compared and discussed with previous investigations on thin ferroelectric films.

Abstract: In order to investigate the mechanism of hybrid doped ferroelectric, BaTiO3 sample was prepared via conventional mixed-oxide method. The sample was then subjected to doping process with Fe3+ as acceptor dopant and Nb5+ as donor dopant. With varied concentration of acceptor dopant from 0.5 to 1 %M at fixed 1%M of donor, hysteresis property was obtained via Sawyer-Tower circuit. The hysteresis property of the sample was observed to vary over time by influence of ageing effect. By numerical scaling, the stretched exponential decay behavior of the system was obtained to gain the better insight of ageing mechanism of hybrid doped ferroelectric. With stretched exponential fitting, stretching parameter of lower doped Nb5+ were observed lower than that of equivalently doped Nb5+.

Abstract: Effects of electric field-amplitude and mechanical stress on hysteresis area were investigated in partially depoled hard PZT bulk ceramic. At any compressive stress, the hysteresis area was found to depend on the field-amplitude with a same set of exponents to the power-law scaling. Consequently, inclusion of compressive stresses into the power-law was also obtained in the form of < A – Aσ=0 > α E05.1σ1.19 which indicated the difference of the energy dissipation between the under-stress and stress-free conditions.
