A study was performed on electrical-field-induced dielectric anomalies in C-oriented 0.955Pb(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O 3-0.045PbTiO3 single crystals. Three distinct ordered phases, which were distinguished by their frequency dispersion behavior were revealed. The existence of a medium-range ordered phase between the long-range and the short-range ordered phases, resulting from the competing features of the relaxor and ferroelectric constituents, Pb(Zn1/3Nb 2/3)O3 and PbTiO3, was proposed.
