The dependences of the bulk photovoltaic effect on the composition fraction x,temperature,and on illumination wavelength have been investigated in the(1-x)PbTiOjxLa(Zn213Nbl13)03 solid solution ceramics.The composition dependence of the photo voltaic current Jph shows a very similar tendency to that of the remanent polarization Pr,suggesting that Jh is directly related with Pr.On the contrary,variation of the photocurrent with temperature measured in a sample with x=0.105 reveals an anomalous peak just below the Curie temperature.These characteristics are discussed in comparison with the ceramic BaTi03 data by Brody.
