Title: Phase coexistence and domain configuration in Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.34PbTiO3 single crystal revealed by synchrotron-based X-ray diffractive three-dimensional reciprocal space mapping and piezoresponse force microscopy

Abstract

The crystalline phases and domain configuration in the morphotropic phase boundary composition Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-0.34PbTiO3 (PMN-0.34PT) single crystal have been investigated by synchrotronbased X-ray 3D Reciprocal Space Mapping (3D-RSM) and Piezoresponse Force Microscopy. The coexistence of tetragonal (T) and monoclinic MC phases in this PMN-0.34PT single crystal is confirmed. The affiliation of each diffraction spot in the 3D-RSM was identified with the assistance of qualitative simulation. Most importantly, the twinning structure between different domains in such a mixed phase PMN-PT crystal is firmly clarified, and the spatial distribution of different twin domains is demonstrated. Additionally, the lattice parameters of T and MC phases in PMN-0.34PT single crystal as well as the tilting angles of crystal lattices caused by the interfacial lattice mismatch are determined.
