Abstract

The template grain growth technique was used to synthesis textured 60BiFeO3-PbTiO3 (60'40BFPT) by using platelets of BaTiO3 as template. Synchrotron measurement clearly showed textured 60'40BFPT. Moreover, in situ high energy synchrotron radiation was employed to investigate the influence of an external electric filed on crystallographic structure of mixed phase 60:40BFPT. Application of an electric field ≥ 1 kV/mm resulted in phase transformation from mixed rhombohedral/tetragonal phases (≈ 73.5% tetragonal / 26.5% rhombohedral) to predominately tetragonal phase (≈ 95%) at applied field of 6 kV/mm.
