Title: Dielectric and ferroelectric properties of Pb{sub 0.88}La{sub 0.12}(Ti{sub 1−x}Mn{sub x}){sub 0.97}O{sub 3} nanoceramics

Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • The nanoceramics of La/Mn modified PbTiO{sub 3} are synthesized by mechano-thermal route. • Materials have been characterized using various experimental methods. • Drastic change in dielectric and electrical properties of PbTiO{sub 3} has been observed. • The high dielectric constant makes the material very promising candidate for DRAM. • The Mn substitution also makes the material useful for piezoelectric devices. - Abstract: The polycrystalline samples of Pb{sub 0.88}La{sub 0.12}(Ti{sub 1−x}Mn{sub x}){sub 0.97}O{sub 3} (x = 0.0, 0.04, 0.07, 0.10) (PLMT) were prepared using a mechano-thermal method. Preliminary structural analysis of the above samples, carried out using X-ray diffraction data, shows tetragonal structure. This study also shows that the basic compound PLT (Pb{sub 0.88}La{sub 0.12}TiO{sub 3}) retains its tetragonal structure even up to 10% of Mn substitution at the Ti-site. The transmission electron micrographs (TEM) of PLMT samples exhibit that materials prepared by the above method are found to be of nano-size. The temperature–frequency dependence of dielectric studies exhibits increase in relative permittivity with rise in Mn-concentration in PLMT, and hence it can make the materials useful for device applications. The temperature dependence of ac conductivity shows presence of different types of charge species. It ismore » also observed that oxygen vacancies play a significant role in the high-temperature conduction-mechanism and dynamics of polarization of the system. Piezoelectric charge coefficient (d{sub 33}) increases with increase in the Mn content in PLMT.« less
