Recent advances in (K,Na)NbO3-based ferroelectrics is reviewed, with special emphasis on the (K,Na)NbO3-LiTaO3-LiSbO3 system. Processing issues are elaborated on. The importance of precursor purity, moisture sensitivity and oxygen content on the dielectric and piezoelectric properties will be shown. Properties of prototype transducers are given and it will(More)
Novel-environment tests are the most widespread experimental technique for characterizing exploration, yet detailed evaluation of their performance among species is lacking. We compared the test for eight bird species by combining three well-known metrics of behavior: movement frequency, proportion of features visited, and scanning. In both overall and(More)
Morphotropic phase boundary composition KNaNbO<sub>3</sub>-LiTaO<sub>3</sub>-LiSbO<sub>3</sub> (KNN-LT-LS) thin films were grown by pulsed laser deposition on niobium doped conductive SrTiO<sub>3</sub> substrates. Using X-ray diffractometry, the phase evolution, stoichiometry, and growth orientation were monitored for various deposition conditions including(More)
