Damping Constant (Linewidth) and the Relaxation Time of the Brillouin LA Mode for the Ferroelectric-Paraelectric Transition in PbZr1-xTixO3

2016-10-01
The damping constant (linewidth) of the longitudinal acoustic (LA) mode is calculated as a function of temperature using the observed Brillouin frequencies of this mode from the literature for the ferroelectric-paraelectric transition (T-C = 657 K) in PbZr1-xTixO3 (x = 0.45). For this calculation of the damping constant, the pseudospin-phonon coupled model and the energy fluctuation model are used by fitting to the observed data for the Brillouin frequencies of the LA mode in the ferroelectric (T < T-C) and paraelectric (T > T-C) phases of this compound (x = 0.45). Values of the activation energy are deduced for both ferroelectric and paraelectric phases. The relaxation time is also obtained by means of fitting to the observed data from the literature for the inverse relaxation time at various temperatures in the paraelectric phase of PbZr1-xTixO3. The temperature dependences of the damping constant and of the relaxation time with the values of the activation energy that we have calculated indicate that the pseudospin-phonon coupled model and the energy fluctuation model are capable of describing the ferroelectric-paraelectric transition (T-C = 657 K) in PbZr1-xTixO3 (x = 0.45) adequately.

Calculation of the damping constant and the relaxation time of the LA mode in the incommensurate phase of quartz
Ates, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2021-04-01)
The damping constant (linewidth) of the LA mode is calculated as a function of temperature for the incommensurate (INC) phase of quartz by using the models of the pseudospin-phonon (PS) coupled and the energy fluctuation (EF). For this calculation, the observed linewidth (Gamma(LA)) data are used at P = 0 and 80.5MPa from the literature. Close to the incommensurate phase between the alpha and beta phases of quartz, the observed Gamma(LA) and the frequency shifts (Delta v(LA) ) are also analyzed by the power...

Raman frequency of the soft mode is used as an order parameter which is calculated from the molecular field theory. On that basis, the damping constant is calculated by fitting the expressions from the pseudospin-phonon coupled model and the ener...

The damping constant is calculated as a function of pressure at room temperature using the normalized intensity as an order parameter near the cubic-tetragonal phase transition in SrTiO3.
